Stronk Serb
October 2nd, 2017, 06:04 PM
Native, Serbian
You could say Croatian since Croatian and Serbia are different but essentially same? It's more of a dialectical difference than linguistic.

English near native fluency

Italian- rusty, I can understand some things and communicate most basic things

Latin- studied it in school, better at it than Italian but still harder to communicate things because of rusty grammar skills, but I can still understand many words because every European language has something borrowed from Latin

On the other hand I can read out loud most European languages except French, Finnish and the Baltic languages. The catch is, I don't understand what I read :D
sisu Those are essentially the same, with minor differences. Some linguists still see them as Serbo-Croatian. I can give you tips and some basic lessons if you want :)

I can understand and speak a little French and very little of Italian and Spanish

Being able to understand and read more than just your native language will broaden ones horizons significantly.

italian - took a course, still have my notes but really need to brush up

we had some chinese lessons in primary school, but my teacher borrowed all my notes and never gave them back :mad: really pissed because i'd redone them neatly and now all i can remember is hello, my name is, and happy new year.
