English, Arabic. I learnt a bit of French in school although I won't be fluent at it now. Urdu
I need to learn Spanish since I'm gonna go to States to practice Medicine.
I want to learn Mandarin but I'm afraid I'll put too much on my plate. So I mainly want to perfect my Urdu, since I have a slight accent and lack of vocabulary due to not living in Pakistan.

I din't know how to speak Urdu fluently until I was 16. My parents would speak to me in Urdu at home and I would reply in English because I was encouraged from a very young age in school to speak in English.

Fluent in English, French, Urdu and Punjabi.

I'm decent at German but hope to become fluent within a few years.

After that, I would like to try learning Spanish but anymore than that would be too much as I couldn't practice them all at the same time.

Well, I wouldn't forget French, English and Punjabi even if I never use them again, but the others require practice. I love hearing and learning basic words in languages like Greek, Italian, Norse, Icelandic, Farsi, Romanian, Dutch, Catalan, Pashto, Romansh,... But I'm probably never learning them, just being fluent in Spanish and German would be awesome.

It's a one-dimensional mix as all of them are spoken in similar areas. Languages like Mandarin or Swahili will be very important in tomorrow's world so a lot of schools are starting to offer them but they don't appeal to me very much. I guess I just really like our little IE family.

Fluent in Urdu, English and also Punjabi to some extent. I can speak French fairly well and understand about 80% of it since I learned it at school. Used to speak Balochi as a child but not anymore - don't even understand much of it anymore. Around 6 months ago, I started taking classes for German and therefore I can speak basic German and communicate well for a foreigner.

Plan on learning Dutch as its a mix of German-English when I'm finished with German. Then maybe even an Asian language if I wanna go nuts. Plus French or Italian.
