amandagmu Posted May 3, 2014 at 08:32 AM Report Share Posted May 3, 2014 at 08:32 AM - English - native (two 100% American parents) - French - fluent to bilingual (I lived in Paris as a child and two short times in Toulouse as an adult, where I lived with my surrogate French mother!) - Mandarin - advanced (although I often find myself humbled and when not in China I'd definitely say my speaking ability is more "upper intermediate" ... on a good day. I did pass the HSK 5, but not sure how much that actually says because the test was so unrealistic for what I mostly read: history and politics! no surprise.) - German - intermediate (B1, but far better comprehension than ability to produce grammatically correct anything... but I live in a German-speaking environment these days and it's probably slightly better than I think) - Spanish - low intermediate, but higher comprehension (thanks to French background and being in a relationship with/married to/have a child with a Spaniard whose parents speak nothing at all but Castellano - proud that when I enrolled in a two-week course at Instituto Cervantes last summer to finally formally study some Spanish I was noted as at a B1 level during the initial placement exam - awesome!) 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
