I was interested to know what are peoples first languages.
I would do a poll but I would probably miss one off.
Mine is English (obviously).

English, did some Italian in school but have since forgotten it.

Also, I know how to say "Oh My God, There's An Axe In My Head" in Spanish ... in fact there's a site which has "Oh My God, There's An Axe In My Head" in many languages if you Google for it. :D

My mother's language is French, and i've learn English, Spanish and Chinese at school ;-) I've also learn some words of dutch.
I'm so surprised to see so many people learning french, it's so boring !

For a native speaker, that might be, but not for a non-native French speaker IMHO. I've been learning it for ~10 years now and I absolutely love it, especially the grammar.

You could say English, but for the very beginning of my life until I was 5, my family (fathers side) was strict Russian.

Even when we moved to England, the situation was still the same until me and my Mom moved back to Australia many years later.
