But I consider myself to be fluent only in the first two.
English was hard at first because it was the first foreign language I had to learn and it is very different from my native language. I could choose from English and french but french is useless compared to English
I understand Polish because my grandfather spoke it.
I learned Russian because I had to learn a second foreign language at school and it was quite easy as I knew some Polish and these languages have many similarities. the only inconvenience was that I had to learn cyrillic alphabet, especially writing because some written letters are spelled differently in latin and cyrillic. I can't read fast but I understand almost everything when I'm watching TV.
I started learning Spanish because I wanted to learn another language and I didn't have anything else to do. I don't know why but it seems to be easier than english.
Japanese is the language of my heart since every material thing I like comes from Japan. And understand I am from the Mario generation. I also grew up watching Japanese animation cartoons, And in case you missed it, please call me Manga.
... I'm from Poland and I speak Polish [obviously], English [...], Russian [my favourite], Italian [not good] and Finnish [just a bitty bit of] and German [I know 5 words only Update: 0]. [Polish is cool.]
I speak both English and a bit of Spanish (not nearly enough for my tastes, though enough to make simple conversation). Once I get Spanish down, I will get right on to trying other languages- of course, I have to find the time for that. Four years of Spanish tends to eat up time when it comes to language-learning, after all.
