English is my second language. Been playing World of Warcraft since the game launched in Europe (februray 2005). I play in a multinational European guild, so yes, I have indeed been exposed to an unhealthy dose of foreign languages. I am, along with my girlfriend, the only Icelandic person in the guild I play in, so I've not gotten much use out of my native language.But I guess that's mostly a good thing, since my ability to communicate in English has increased dramatically since I started playing the game, to the point that I've been mistaken for a local while I was traveling in England. Due to similarity, my ability to understand the Scandinavian languages (Norwegian, Danish and Swedish) has also increased a bit, although I still can't maintain a logical conversation using any of those.And then we have all the other European languages, off the top of my head I can remember people from the following countries: Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Holland, England, Scotland, Germany, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Italy, Poland, Russia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Hungary and The Faroe Isles... so it's a bit of a meltpot of languages.It's perfectly fine though, since Europeans tend to speak 2-3 languages (the Dutch speak like 4, and yet they're always stoned!)
