    Deliberately awkward.

    I can speak English but also learned German to AS level and French to A-level standard. Since that is a few years ago now I don't speak them that well anymore. I've practically forgotten German but since I go to France now and again, I remember a fair bit.

    On balance, my answer would be that I speak 1.83 languages.

    Basically you should only vote for a whole number if you can speak one or multiple languages flawlessly. I don't expect many here to be able to do that.

    I think the whole poll is a sham because no-one really thought this through until the poll was posted and thus we have a poll that represents multiple options that don't suit anyone and doesn't take into account that there is a very happy middle ground that keeps everyone happy (more or less).

    That middle ground should be a facility to take into account languages that are partially spoken.

    You're right, I also forgot to take into account those nations that pretend to have English as their national language. Yes, I'm looking at you Australia. Though not USA because they might be listening.

    So basically you're saying that there should be a 0.25 option for Aussies

    I've gone for the awkward option as well because of the point manker raised.
    There is a saying that applies.... a jack of all trades but master of none.

    I can get by in French, German, and a my Spanish is being worked on. I have smatterings in several other languages but not conversational standards....able to order food, drink or look for hotels etc. (tourist guide phrases almost).
    The biggest problem I have apart from local dialects, accents and the speed at which people talk is using the correct order the words should "in sentence be a"

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    I only voted one, cause even though I understand a lot of spanish, I cannot speak any of it properly..... well with that in mind, maybe I should have voted 0 because even my English isn't considered proper
