My two native languages are French and Spanish. Speak fluently, read, write and curse
Main foreign language: English. Speak, write, read, and thanks to WC curse
 :banana :banana

I do understand and read Italian (my father's family is from northern Italy) but I can't write it.
I can order wine and tomato soup in German  :lol: :lol: :lol:
And I know some Chinese words like thank you, motherfucker and cheers

English & Icelandic = speak, write, read without thinking.

Danish, Sweedish and most other northen languages = read.

I read, write, and speak English, my native language (I was born in Los Angeles, California.)
I read, write, and speak German, an ancestral language (my maternal grandfather was from Germany.)
I speak tex-mex Spanish.

I know a few words of Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Ukrainian, Ethiopian, French, Arabi. I used to know a few words of Farsi but forgot.

I've noticed some difference between tex-mex or even mexican Spanish and true castillian Spanish. Castillian would use the word malissimo to mean malovent or bad. In tex-mex, it is mala. For example, bad person or people is mala jente.

But some things, I think, are similar, such as que es hora on? Essa siete qaurente-seis a la noche aqui.

I thought the word "fuck" was  pretty universal in any language?

So how do you say motherfucker in Chinese? :O

He meant Portuguese :cool:

In standard spanish( Castillian as you call it ) we also use the words mala gente, and we use "malísimo" when we mean very bad/too bad.

Cool Charlie...I know two polite phrases auf Deutsch

What, only two polite phrases? I guess here is potential for development.  :D

Quote
Guten Tag, and "Guten Nacht mein herren und Damen,"
Danke  !! Ich liebe dich....!!
also-wie veil es, and einen bier bitte

Good phrases! I don’t know what you mean with the "bold" part but I guess as long as you get your beer it’s all fine.  :)

The rest are curse words,and I do much better in english!
or my unique brand of english :lol:

I believe you! :D


Tschüss! (= So long!)

Well they don't have an exact translation of motherfucker, the closest would be: diu-nei lou-mou 

diu = fuck
