有 沒 有 別 人 用 繁 體?
我!我簡體繁體都懂。臺灣人嗎?定係香港人?

Translation: Me. I understand both simplified and traditional Chinese. Are you from Taiwan or Hong Kong? (Well actually I know you're from Utah, but...)
Sorry, I didn't see your post in the deluge of other posts. I was born here, in America, but both my parents are from Taiwan. You?

Neben Tim bin ich hoffentlich nicht der einzige Deutsch sprechende hier. Ich bin aber aus Österreich, nicht aus Deutschland.


Besides Tim I'm hopefully not the only german speaking guy here. But I'm from Austria not from Germany.

Wat se julle? My eerste taal is Engels, maar hier in Suid Afrika is Afrikaans ook a groot taal. Almal in my familie is eintlik afrikaans, ek is die enigste engelse mens, maar ek kan afrikaans net so goed praat.

Do I see four?

I know Malay, Mandarin Chinese (do you consider Traditional and Simplified as two?), Cantonese, English, a little Vietnamese and a little Hindi. I speak the first four fluently. "A little" means I can read anything in those languages, but not necessarily understand them :p Probably enough to get me what I want and to where I want in Vietnam and India ;)

Beat that!

Edit: Oh, I forgot, I know Indonesian as well (kinda similar to, yet quite different from Malay). Now beat that! ;)

I thought the Taiwanese "translation" of your last name would be Yang instead of Young? Me? I was born, and grew up in Malaysia, and so were my parents, and their parents, and one or two of my great-grandparents were from China I think. So I'm Chinese by race.

Deutsch ist nicht meine Muttersprache, aber die Sprache kann ich. Ich glaube es gibt hier wenigstens 5 oder 6 von uns die deutsch sprechen können.

Bei der US Open 2008 habe ich eine Familie kennengelernt, die aus Deutschland gereist sind. Ich habe mit ihnen ein bisschen gesprochen (auf deutsch yay!). Am meistens höre ich nur deutsches Radio im Internet, aber es macht mir mehr spass mit anderen Leuten zu sprechen ;-)

Dene I understood everything except the "poku" I think I would used "watashi" instead. I don't know how to write hiragana.
It's "boku", not "poku". And generally males use boku and females use watashi (at least by my understanding). However I think it is commonly changing in Japan so that younger people use boku, while older people use watashi. I'm not certain on that, but of course things do change (especially as they get more "westernised").

I can pass off like I know around 7 languages (aka, "Hi", "Sorry", and "I don't understand/I don't know"... XP)... I only speak two fluently. Learned some German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese, and am currently trying to learn Japanese.

Je peux parler Francais et un petit peu Allemand. Nhưng tiếng Việt vẫn là tiếng mẹ đẻ của mình :D

(I can speak French and a little bit German. Though Vietnamese still remains my mothertongue)

Showoff. :p How do you have the patience to add all the proper accent markings for Vietnamese?
Heh, it's one of the rare things that I can show off :p Vietnamese accent markings aren'ts that bad if you've got a program like Vietkey :)
