Default What language (other than English) do you speak?

Please select the language that you are the most fluent at speaking other than English.

e.g.: if you speak English, Portuguese and Farsi, but your Portuguese is better than your Farsi, then select Farsi. Okay, Farsi's not an option... but you would select "other" and reply with "Farsi." Mersi (I have no idea if my Romanised Farsi spelling is correct or not)

No pig latin? hmmm...

I dunno, after English I'm not fluent in anything, I can get by though in:

Italian, did this in primary school and can still do greetings etc and recognise most words, so with a dictionary handy I could get by

Indonesian, did this in high school and pretty much the same deal, could get by with the help of a dictionary

Macedonian, learned a few greetings and stuff from a friend and can kinda read the Cyrillic alphabet, need a reference though cause I usually forget some (read: most )

I know all the important phrases in Cantonese.

"Wife what is for dinner?"
"Shut up, sit down, don't cry"

You get the gist.
