    I recognize, in addition to English, also French, Spanish, Korean, Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese), and Japanese. So if including English and separating the spoken Chinese languages into separate entities, 7 languages I recognized. If not including English and combining both spoken Chinese languages into one entity, 5 languages I recognized.
