Kinda self explanitory, ahaha. 

I speak English as my native tongue, Greek due to my background, and German from school

Welche Sprachen können Sie sprechen?

I'm terrible at languages, as are far too many Brits. We tend to get by knowing that most foreigners speak better English than we speak their own languages, which breeds inaction.

I can remember a bit of French and German from school, and having lived in Wales for 15 years I can just about follow a conversation in Welsh (but can't speak or read it). Other than that I'm still trying to master the English language.

I speak two languages, if pig latin counts.a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

No, I'm just like Joe, a lazy spoiled English speaker – only in my case, it's more scornful, this being an officially bilingual country, after all.  I never could quite wrap my larynx around those elusive French glottal calisthenics.

Canadians don't learn english and french in school? What do you do if you go to a french-speaking city?

 

By the way, I speak spanish, english and I'm currently studying japanese. I'd studied a little french and german, but I don't rememeber too much.

English.

A few words in Spanish, but not enough to carry on a conversation.

 Yeah, we take French (or Anglais) classes from about age 8 through 14, but they're optional after that, and they only cover the very basics. And I hated it and only learned the bare minimum, and then abandoned it forever (and immediately forgot a lot of what I learned!)  Nobody's fault but my own, I know…Actually, I've considered learning to read & write it better, so I could communicate with a keyboard, or paper & pencil if necessary. But for now I'm content to let the French speak English, that way they can feel superior. Everybody wins!

Oh, I sort of learnt Indonesian in Primary. Only for I think Prep and Grade 1, though. I only remember a few phrases, like Nama saya James, and that sort of thing. Just REALLY basic stuff

Incidentally, George had the best German out of the four Beatles. They all learnt a little in Hamburg but he managed the most.
