    I learnt English and Korean at the same time but since I went to an English speaking school I'm way more comfortable speaking English than Korean. I also have kept the same group of friends since college and we're all kinda multilinugual so their slangs and phrases from their country sometimes creeps into my speech. Plus, they always understand terms I use in Korean from time to time because I can't think of a better word for it in English (like sometimes it's more like a feeling of a word not a literal translation, so I don't like saying it in English).

    English is also my second language, we had to take it as a subject in school and now I’m quiet fluent.
    I was born speaking Fijian, but my parents aren’t Natives. Just learnt it because of all the people around me. Also, I’ve been speaking Japanese for about 6 years now. I’m pretty fluent in it.

    Edit: oh lol I forgot to answer the question.
    Yes, I love to speak English way more than Fijian. It really develops my social skills and I love it

    English is my second language. I normally speak using my native language, but there's almost always a chance that I would say something in English, sometimes for the lack of term when you have to translate it in Filipino or it would be easier to understand if I just use the more commonly used English word.

    I'm more comfortable writing in English though.

    English is my first language and it is also what I speak most of the time. Spanish, however, would be my second language, and although I'm still learning it (I have about a year and a half), I think it sounds amazing and would love to be able to speak it fluidly/ fluently in day to day life I tend to say small phrases throughout the day in Spanish though

    English is my second language and even though I would rather speak Arabic I would rather not since I get a lot of racist comments when I talk in Arabic in front of my friends who don't lol

    Yes, and it annoys the hell out of everyone because A) my family is xenophobic and B) there aren't that many people who speak Japanese around here.

    I guess English is my first? I grew up learning how to speak English during my speech therapy days plus went to an English-speaking school too. Second would be melayu but not very fluent on it. Personally I'm more comfortable speaking in English!

    I speak multiple to varying degrees. I'd say I'm okay with Spanish, German and Japanese, but my native language is English.

    I of course I like using them to connect with people from other cultures or parts of the world I'd never be able to usually. However, I only use them on the internet or reading things, and have a hard time understanding sometimes.

    I've never actually verbally said anything in these languages beyond practicing because well... I never get the chance to actually speak. I'm usually too shy and afraid of what my parents will think if I speak to strangers in other languages when I'm with them.

    I like the languages though. They have expressions that don't exist in English, and I get to express sides of myself I generally couldn't I guess.

    Related to Animal Crossing though, all that speaking foreign languages does for me is that when I go to international Club Tortimer, I get harassed by girls trying to flirt with me and get begged for bells in other languages. XD
