Poll: How many foreign languages do you speak?

Since we are in the business of international domain names, I just thought it would be neat to start a poll to see how many foreign languages most people can speak. By "speak", I mean that you are conversationally capable in person-to-person situations with a native speaker of the language, and imply that you can also read and write the language.

I'll be the first respondent, if I can actually figure out how to setup the poll.

The actual poll question is "how many foreign languages do you speak?". I forgot to include the word foreign in the thread title, though, and I can't change it now.

Re: Poll: How many languages do you speak?

I could change it but realistically how many languages do you speak might be a lot clearer. Even if you put foreign languages I'd probably include my native tongue...

I'd guess that there are likely some folks here who are native english speakers and who don't speak any foreign languages.
