well so far its english, mandarin, a bit of french here and there, and of course a bunch of chinese dialects XD

irisca is right about every next one being easier. language learning skills are transferable, and knowing one closely related language helps in learning the family of languages, such as knowing french helps you learn portuguese.

I am living in Spain and I speak Spanish too. I am also studying Catalan and I have studied French and Chinese too.

For me, English is pronunciation-wise difficult. Also  I can never handle "phrasal verbs". As to Spanish, the subjuntive mode is a bit complicated because it doesn't exist in my mother tongue, which is Japanese. Also in Japanese we don't have the articles (the, a or an) and since the rules are similar but different between Spanish and English, now I have no idea of when to put  articles or which article I have to put.

Sri Lanka

I can speak English. I speak fairly good Sinhala (the main language in Sri Lanka), but I can't read Sinhala. I can manage a little Tamil, another language used in Sri Lanka. I can follow a bit of Hindi, the main language of India.

I have studied French and German, but I have forgotten most of it. I once spoke to some German Swiss people in French, as I find speaking in French is a little easier than speaking in German.

@anarfent, Yes, the use of articles in Spanish and English may be similar. However, there could be some differences. In French, one would say: elle est professeur; but in English, the same thing is: she is a teacher. The definite article "a" has to be used in English. Just like in Japanese, there are no articles used in Sinhala.

When we speak in a foreign language, we are sometimes influenced by the language we normally use. I can remember a Japanese friend telling me "Thank you very much", for something we would normally just say "Thanks". I was imagining to myself that what she actually wanted to say was:  Domo, arigoto gosai mesu
