Answer for question 4326.

Which languages do you speak or read? If you know multiple languages, why did you learn more than just your native language? If you could learn another language fluently, which would it be and why?
Of all languages, I learnt Cornish at the age of 13 - which is great if you have use for it. Alas, I might as well have learnt Klingon for the use it has been to me. Of course, I also know a smattering of schoolgirl French, I love you in Swedish, kiss my ass in Hindi and a very rude term in Dutch.

However, I want to learn Italian now - a friend of mine is fluent and thanks to her, I have been watching 'Inspector Montalbano.' Suddenly, I started picking up some what they were saying without the aid of subtitles. Think I might have a go via @Rosetta Stone' or whatever.
