American living in Europe
I am an American (born and raised near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) but for the past four and a half years, I've been living in Northern Ireland. Sorry, I know a smidgen of German and no Swedish or Dutch. I'm fairly good with French and I can get by in Latin.

Latin....wow. I'm impressed!

Living in Europe, I find that I can say 6 words in languages of countries I've been to: hello, goodbye, thanks, beer, and two rude words that I wouldn't want to repeat here.

well, living in the netherlands means being educated in english, french and german, but it's amazing how quick you're able to forget that

Why Latin (and Croatian)
I did my undergraduate degree in History focusing on medieval Church history. Latin was helpful. French was my minor, and I was taught by a wonderful woman who was born in Northern France.

I spent two weeks in Croatia and know how to say only two things: Thank you and a very rude sentence about a dog and someone's mother. It's amazing how many situations one can navigate with just those two bits.

Both were taught to me by a fellow student (a native of Zagreb) over a pitcher of beer in a bar in a small town in Western Pennsylvania (where our university was located).

Hej pa dej dar i Sverige! Jag bor i -- I live in central Washington state. Lived in Sweden 2 1/2 years and became quite fluent, but that was a while ago. In late March we are headed to Germany. Husband's daughter and family are in little town of Kashofen. I am hoping I can get by with a few words of German as I think it's fun to at least TRY! At least now that I am learning to knit, I'll be able to fill some time on the long flight (Seattle/London/Frankfurt).
