After a long, long break it's time for BTT...

Parlez vous?

    Do you have any foreign language books and if so can you (still) read them?
Noticing that English is a foreign language to me I can say that I have books in several foreign languages: English, Russian, Hungarian, Hebrew, Swedish are the ones which come to mind, there may be others too.
I am fluent enough in English, I can still read some Russian (but probably not enough to get the idea of any book). At this point I can read Hebrew, but won't understand most of the words (ie. I know the writing marks and know how they are read), so to read a book in Hebrew... not a chance. When it comes to Swedish I would probably understand most of it, but I have to admit that I dislike Swedish as a language. And Hungarian... I don't know it well enough (I still remember how to order two beers though *grin*).

Technically speaking, English is my foreign language too! :D But I've got some Japanese (mostly comics), Spanish and French books at home. Wow, you know a lot of language!

I put my answer here. :)
