Hackaday's many languages

Just collecting some information out of curiosity.

Similar projects worth following
I realized some time ago that the members of the Hackaday community speak many different languages. I've started this project as a language study, with the goal of figuring out the most common languages spoken by HaD. Please post what language(s) You are fluent in, what languages you can have a conversation in, as well as your native language. Thank you all for your time!

Enjoy this project?

I'm from North Carolina, USA. English is my native language, although I'd say I'm only 90% or so fluent since I'm still discovering local-ish (Southeastern US) idioms that I've not heard before. I'm also about 75-80% fluent in NYC / Upstate NJ English (both my parents are from upstate New Jersey, within a 10min trip over the "traffic problems" George Washington Bridge into NYC) and about probably 65% in the Chinese eBay Seller dialect of same (because I buy way too much stuff on eBay).

I also speak a little bit of Spanish -- sadly, much decayed from high school and early college, and (more sadly) not really quite enough for a conversation, even -- and an even tinier bit of French. Interestingly, I've also got a fractional smidgen or so of Classical Latin, although my pronunciation may be a little off since I've no Latin-speaking Romans to ask exactly how things were pronounced ~2000yrs ago. I know maybe five or six words of German (most of which are foods) and about the same of Russian.

American English native.  Passable Mandarin (lived in China couple years) and getting better in German since moving here 5 years ago.  My French is functional.  I've forgotten two years of college Japanese.  C, Python, R, and AVR assembly.  Working on Forth at the moment.

Hello, I'm Jaromir and I used to log in there for about two years... This looks like AA meeting ;-)

But anyway, I'm from Slovakia, native Slovak, fluent in Slovak and for 99% in Czech. I can speak English (well, kind of) and have very basic understanding of some other Slavic languages, like Polish or Russian. I can barely speak German, but fluently swear in Hungarian. I can write in C, but I don't use comments.

  Are you sure? yes | no
