I occasionally lapse into the use of British English.
I can be a persnickety curmudgeon when it comes to correct grammatical usage in what people say/write--just because it's on-line and on the computer doesn't mean one need throw proper grammar out the window! =b
I'm opinionated but my ears remain open and willing to listen to INTELLIGENT thoughts....
Apart from English, I only know a smattering of words & phrases in the other languages that are mentioned above, although I might know a bit more of Spanish than the others as I studied it in secondary education for a number of years.
