Being able to speak more than one language has many benefits. It can improve your career prospects and increase your knowledge of other cultures; and it’s also said to improve your academic and multi-tasking skills.
My native language is English, and I speak and understand some French that I learned at school. I wish I could remember more of my French! I took a course and had some German lessons a few years ago, but because I don’t use the language often I have forgotten a lot of what I learned.
How many languages can you speak?
You can take part in this poll, and you can also tell me which languages you speak in the comments – I’d love to know which languages some of the readers of this site speak. You can include languages that you are not fluent in, but can get by in
