    I can speak ok Welsh, French and Spanish. I visit Germany a bit and should learn some despite the fact many speak good English.

    Nobody from Scotland ever has. Its because you are all ruffians and uncouth types, peasants. If only you had let the Romans in and not built that silly wall.

    I speak a few words of a few....but am going to make the effort to try and get to at least basic conversational Spanish, Portuguese and Croat the latter being the hardest one apparently.

    As a South Walian, I find people speaking Welsh to each other to be odd. Groups of lads from somewhere like Caernarfon at Wales games do and I have to double take.

    Daughter in law is from Chile, so fluent in Spanish and grandkids are fluent also. My son is virtually fluent and speaks french quite well.

    It’s strange that my daughter-in-law can instantly recognise an Argentinian Colombian or Uruguayan accent as it all seems the same to my ears.
