Language skills is one thing and linguistics as a branch of science is another. General linguists often operate with languages which they practically cannot speak at all. It is a very abstract discipline and surprisingly exact also.

There was news about a small tribe in mongolia speaking almost an extinct language.
Their language is close to turkish so the reporters managed to communicate with them in a week.

I wish you had written your comment in English og2009 because it is an interesting question and more people might like to share it.


My opinion is "How many languages do you speak?" is an empty question. You cannot estimate language skills with "how many" terms. No matter how many languages someone has once studied she probably speaks those which she regularly uses.


There was an interesting article in Helsingin Sanomat about language learning. The author said teaching many languages at school is waste of time. Most people never acchieve a level which could be of any use for them in life. And still so many people dream of mastering languages or regret not having done enough to learn.


There is one exception. English. Whether we like it or not it is the best tool available for international communication. I can hardly imagine a skill that would have been more useful in my life. I can compare it straight to reading and writing. No English word that I learn has ever been in vain.


Learning other languages widens one´s world but it all comes after English.
