Fluent in many, many, many languages.

Interpreter as a career.

Devoted my life to linguistics and learning new languages.

I've listed my languages in the order I learned them.

I have a major in German, French, Italian and Spanish from University of Florida, as well as a PhD in linguistic studies.

Each language has taken me ~ 6 to 10 months to become fluent. (8 hr day/5 day week studies)

I tend to learn languages related to each other, from certain places, or that other friends speak or are learning.

I also learn languages in "sets", normally by geographical location or language family.
