So, I wanted to know what your first languages were, guys.  I know a lot of you are native English speakers, but a lot of people here aren't.  I just wanted to know the proportions.  I added pretty much every language I could think of to give proper results, but I'm sure I forgot some here and there.  Anyway, give us your first language and see how many there are in the forum with the same as you.

 

Note: I know there are several chinese languages, but for the sake of them not taking half the poll, I just regrouped them together :)

 

Oh, and my first language is French, by the way.

American English.

But I do know British English alright, partially because I'm about 2/5 Scottish and British.

I also am a Spanish II student ATM, and know some French. (Minimal, mostly counting)

I can also count to three and say no in German (my family has a lot of German, my grandma's dad spoke fluent German and English)

English is my first language. 

I can speak some French though it's somewhat basic.

Trying to learn Latin, very difficult in my opinion.

English is my first language, but I was born into a Hindi-speaking area, so I probably heard a lot of Hindi and knew a few words before I moved to the US when I was 2. 

 

I wish I actually did know Hindi, though.

Born and raised in Finland, my first language is Finnish. I love English though, i understand it pretty much perfectly and i've always found it to be a rather easy language. Unfortunately i'm not very confident actually speaking it though, i feel like i mispronounce words often.

I voted "other". My first language is Hebrew. However, the majority of my family is English and I've lived in England for most of my life, so my English is actually stronger these days.   :)

Most people assume I'm fully English because of my accent and the way I look.

Great!  There's a lot of variety here, it seems.  Still surprised that not a single hispanophone posted yet, though.
