Title pretty much says it all. That would include even understanding a little bit of language that is not yours, for like basic functioning in a foreign country. Include how you know it written/understanding/spoken.

The only other language I know besides English, is teh language of violence!

Well my first language is Italian obviously, then I like to thin I'm pretty fluent in english, or at lest I can write/speak it in a pretty understandable way, then I understand a little bit of Spanish, due to some similitudes with italian.

Oookay, let's think here.

I know English better than anything, of course, being raised in British-occupied Botswana, Arica, then the UK, and now the US. I also know Latin (school forced it into me...), Scottish Gaelic, a liiiiiiiiiittttle bit of German, some of Tolkien's Elvish, and Na'vi (yes, from the movie Avatar... I'm a hopeless fanboy, okay!)

There are almost 6,000 human languages in existence, give or take depending on who you ask. Of those 6,000 I have attempted to learn 2 besides my native language. I can currently only speak English.

I speak english and spanish (spanish was my native language growing up). I managed to learn english on my own when neighbors moved in who did not speak spanish, my friend in turn learned how to speak spanish.

But Whatever Language I Know Are Of A Waste I Can't Speak In Any Of The Native Language With A Foreigner lol... Its Just Used As Medium Of Communication Over The State (Not Even The Country) So Basically Almost All The Languages I Know Are Not Useful

English is my primary language.

I know some Spanish (Read and speak), and some German (Speak and read). Neither are fluent but I can figure them out.

here in India every state (there are 28 + some other territories) has its own state language, and on top of that each of those language have different "versions"
There is the national (not officially but considered and major spoken apart from english) called Hindi.
First language is (derived mainly from British and has of India's own) English. There are 12 officially recognized versions of English UK and US being universal and proud to say there is Indian English :D
As for me I'm from a majorly english and native language called Tamil speaking family :)

yeah I know it can be havoc for so many languages, but one of those "cultural" aspects Indians are proud of :)
