i'm working on...languages three, four, and five, does that count? i'm a native english speaker who has a more or less working knowledge of spanish [although it has really suffered in the past few years, i'm going to try and get hilda the snack bar lady to teach me while i'm teaching her english], an intermediate knowledge of hindi, and will be taking telegu and arabic within the next year or two [i plan on becoming proficient in at least arabic, of the two of those]. i can also speak a little indonesian, and have studied latin. i can understand italian, although i cant speak it. and i really want to learn russian.

not all linguistics majors actually buckle down and learn foreign languages - but it's hard not to want to
