Default How many languages do you know?

I've got

English
Spanish (the proper one)
Spanglish (lol)
Portuguese (I can understand it perfectly but sometimes my spanish tongue doesn't help me when I'm speaking.)
American Sign Language(yes it is a real language)

so only 4 official languages but I want to learn atleast 6 more.
I'm trying to learn a Nahuatl but I just can't grasp it, even with all the helpful threads on Soy.

So what about you?

English, French, Spanish, and enough Japanese to get myself in trouble. Nahuatl is on the radar, but it's only coming in very small doses... haven't focused on it yet.

Right now I'm either going to go to college for Mechanical Engineering or Journalism. Odds are journalism and engineering on the side. How can any broadcasting company (NBC or CNN prefferably, maybe ESPN) deny a journalist with excellent writing skills (already have this), superb interviewing skills and knows 10 languages. I want to report on those stories that no one else wants to. I dont want to use a translator, I don't want a middle man giving me my story.
And I just love talking to different people.

The other 6 Languages:
French
Chinese
Japanese
Korean
Arabic not sure which dialect yet
An African language also

i only know english and a little bit of spanish. I want to perfect my spanish, to the point that i can hold an educated conversation with someone. A lot of people learn the basics but have limited vocabulary.

I also want to learn an indigenous language such as nuahtle (sp?) but i want to learn one that is connected to where my family comes from. Also i want to learn arabic, and maybe an indian language but there are so many. I love punjabi in bangra music. i have freinds who speak tamil(e) and hindi but yeah i wanna learn alot.

Kown:
Spanish(first language, native tongue)
English(as a second language)

Want to know(to some extent, I guess):
French
Italian
Hindi
Japanese
Mandarin/Cantonese
Malay, Tagalog
Farsi
Russian
German
A Native American language or two

I just started getting into learning another language(french) using the "Duolingo" App, youtube, and dubbing movies. I'm focusing more in french because it's near the languages I already know. Also to see how I am up to in learning another language, and I think it's a good brain exercise for like memory I guess, if I remember right.
I like to think that there may be an order of which language to learn first so to aide in learning the others. Just like you know Spanish, you'll notice Portuguese, French, Italian and them have similar sounds. The thing with the Asian languages you gotta memorize like millions of symbols and squiggly lines.
A native american language would be nice too, I think they're becoming rare. I don't know which one though, maybe all of them idk.

I did two years of french in high school and knowing Spanish was definitely an asset. Even to this day I feel like I understand some french.

I took 1/2 a year of French in high school, but back then that was the least of my concern and I literally just slept through it. The other 1/2 of that year I took Spanish, and you wouldn't be a bit wrong if you guessed that I slept through that as well.
