Two years of French- which includes enough swear words/insults to fill a small mop closet :D
Pig latin
Not a word of English
Science Olympiad is a tribute to Murphey's Law. This has been proven experimentally.
And no, I'm not a guy...even though my sig says will robsinson. It's a reference to Lost in Space, an ancient sci fi TV show. And the robot is the character who always says the line.

Je parle francais, mais je ne suis pas tres (fluent). I speak a little Nihongo, and mostly know "Konnichiwa/Ohayo/Ohayo-gozaimasu/Arigato/Gomen/etc." No habla espanol. I used to speak a bit of chinese, but I forgot it all, give or take... Wo de zhong wen ming zi shi Suzumebachi... well, that's probably wrong anyways. Inquio Latinam? Is that correct? Um...

I think that's it...
