Re: Are You Bilingual? How Did you Learn?German is my maternal language, then I got English in 5th grade, at first it was a fight, but after my parents sent me for a language course to England I fell in love with the language :-)
In 7th grade I took Latin, but that's not a language to speak. But it is a great base for learning other languages.
in 9th grade I took French, I was pretty good at it, but almost lost it all.
After my 9th grade I went to Brazil for a student exchange and my portoguese was great after that. But it's been 15 years since then, so I lost almost all of it, too.
Oh, and I speak a little bit Swedish :-)
But I do have a so called "ear for languages", so if you sent me to France/Brazil/Sweden for some time, I will find back into the language.
