So you tell your wife, we have a code blue in the living room? lol

I speak English but know some Italian from what My grandmother taught me before she passed away when I was a kid. I have a few friends who speak 90% Italian and sometimes they toss in a curve ball.

I speak English at home since that's the only language that all members of my family know, although a few of us know Spanish, so we speak it when we want to say something we don't want the others to know. :p

I speak English, unlike my American friends I actually understand how to speak the English language correctly and not destroy the beauty that is true-English.

Death to the Americanisation of English. I do enjoy your Mountain Dew though guys, so it's all good.

I speak English mostly, occasionally some Irish also - some of my younger relations live in Irish-speaking regions.

You guys can't can't spell worth a crap. You keep adding those extra characters to common words like color.

I speak English, although I have quite a heavy dialect with a high Ulster Scots influence. Luckily, I find it easy enough to switch to the less harsh Ulster English. I do have to make extra effort sometimes when talking to non-Ulster born, native English speakers. Especially when talking to my girlfriend's family who are from Essex

I doubt many of you would understand me if I said something like 'Mind thon day when yous were wee and yous went fer a dander doon the road? Yous fell in da sheuch, and were feard wan o da coos were gonna eat ya.'

Although it rarely gets quite as strong as this

I would get most of it Kentucky Hillbilly is a lot like that.

Actually I experienced very little communication problems except for that stilted, nasal, Queen's English. (just kidding )

One of my good friends lived in Paisley all of his life, so I speak Scottish quite well, however I have the bad habit of imitating the accent when I speak to Scots.
