Hi, I'm Raminta. I'm from Lithuania and my native language is Lithuanian. I'm fluent in English. Now I'm learning Russian (I am learning it at school). Someday I would like to learn Japanese and Hungarian.

Hi everyone, I'm Joanne. I am fluent in English and very limited in Spanish. Is there anyone who speaks Spanish and can CHAT with me so I can improve mine? In a week I am going on a mission trip to Mexico and it would be GREAT if I could speak more fluently with the people there! Thanks!!

Hi, I'm Angelina, and I'm from Mexico.
My first language is obviously Spanish but I also speak English, French and a little bit of Italian. At University I'm getting a licentiate degree on translation and interpretation. (english-spanish) :D
I hope I can find time in the future to learn more languages ^^

Hi! I'm Italian, but I've been studying English for almost 7 years now! Also, having spent 4 months in France, I feel like my French is pretty fluent as well. I love learning languages, so I'm also learning German, which is tougher than I expected but, well, at least I'm trying (:

I hope to learn Russian and maybe Finnish at one point.

Holà! Being Cuban-Mexican I grew up with Spanish as my first language and English as my second. I've been taking ASL lessons since I was 15 and I have conversational skills in Italian. I also hope to learn Portuguese and French in the future.

I speak Hausa as my first language, which is a traditional African language (West African), and I'm learning Arabic and Spanish.  It'd be great if I could have someone to practice with.  Thanks.

I'm puertorrican so my first language is spanish and I also speak english. I took some french classes for a while but I had to let them go because it got in the way with some of my extracurriculars at school.

I recently started to learn korean. I can already read and write since I learned the alphabet, I just don't know any of the meanings yet. (Kind of ridiculous) So I'm working on that now and hope to soon be fully trilingual :)

Anyone have any sites that could help me learn to speak and understand korean?

i figure the best way to learn is to speak. so anyone who knows spanish message me. the more messages i have to translate the faster i'll learn. i might be slow and inaccurate though. i just started learning last week.

I'm Spanish, born and raised in Spain. I'd be more than glad to help anyone who's learning Spanish to practise, feel free to add me :)

Btw, I'm (still) learning English, I'd ask a bit of English practise in return.

Here you can find lots of words in lots of languages!! Also you can contribute what you know :D There are lots of languages that aren't even on the list, and it would be great if they were. Just make sure you add the column in the correct language family/group and you're good :) Also feel free to add words in languages that are there (including English if you think there is a word that should be on a sheet) :DDD
