My main language is Dutch, but I speak English a lot more often :p

I can speak German and French fluently, I speak a few words of Greek (both ancient and new) and Swedish, I'm learning Spanish and Italian (but I kind of have a pause, as soon as I have holidays I'll pick them up ^^)

Rest is just a few words, like Russian :p
<The End Is Near, Because Texie Is Here!> Or something like that <.<

Hm... dutch doesnt sound as hard as german... and its just another language. Although we can understand each others language a bit. They arent that different like english and german.

I see. So it's like two completely different languages ? They just sound similar?

Yes. :)
Some words are the same and many words sounds similar so you can know what word it is in your language.
