Ummm...

I can understand spoken german, japanese, spanish, chinese, italian, french, and some other middle / eastern europe languages.

I can write japanese and german to a minor extent.

I only learned japanese and german... languages just are really easy to me. Its weird.

And I caint hardly speak any of them. It's so weird, and annoying :P

I can't SPEAk anything but English, but I can read (sort of) Spanish and French. Usually enough to figure out the words I don't know anyway.

Native English, most of Spanish, a little bit of Al Bhed and about two words of Japanese. Needless to say, all my anime are dubs or subtitles:D

Horrible to decent French.

Ebonics

Well they're more of dialects and IIRC Ebonics was originally a pidgin.

I have a reasonable understanding of French but I am much better at writing in the language than speaking.
