    I currently know:

    - How to speak, read and write in Polish and English
    - How to speak in Slovak

    Am learning:

    - German (I used to have German as one of my subjects in middle school, but I don't remember much of it, so I thought it would be nice to at least learn basics)

    Currently trying to learn Japanese

    And currently know these languages : almost all yugoslavic languages(Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, Slovenian etc...), Arabic and English.

    I know how to read (which means I can't talk or understand the language): French, German, Latin and Russian. I used to know Russian but I haven't used it in over 10 years so I forgot most of it.
    Stay a while, and listen!

    I am the great mighty poo, and Im going to throw my shit at you.

    Get over here!

    Yeah i can read and understand the basics only in English form. So something like kya hal he (How are you?) but things get really complicated with the little nuances in pronunciation and for some reason in pakistan they speak a mix of punjabi and urdu.

    The worst is how girls and guys have different ways they pronounce certain words, and people back in pakistan thought i was gay because i always pronounced sentences like girls do without realizing it

    People where you go probably mix in some Punjabi because you're in Punjab. Urdu is unlikely to be their original language.

    Yes that can be confusing for beginners.

    Kya hal hay is somewhat informal though technically correct. I'd recommend something more like Aap kaise hain or tum kaise ho.

    A tip for the 'hay' in kya hal hay is that when speaking with elders or when referring to plural you greenall wanna use hain (soft n) and not hay as it can be disrespectful.

    It's of course influenced by anime. However, I already know languages that use normal Latin letters, I thought it was about time I learned an Asian language

    Can you understand Spanish? And what kind of language is Albanian?

    I'm learning Turkish atm, with the aim of eventually being able to decipher Ottoman Turkish.

    Arabic is for Islamic purposes, I don't care too much about being able to speak Arabic normally though I wouldn't mind either.

    A little bit since I also know basic french. Albanian is an indo european language although it is unique in its kind. Just like armenian and greek, it forms its own family in the indo european language families. Scholars are still uncertain on its origins, but the majority agrees that it is a descendant of the illyrian language.

    As far as I know ottoman turkish is different from turkish. It's also written in arabic letters. You need a degree for ottoman turkish, with what I've heard.

    I can't speak arabic. My priorities are elsewhere for the moment. I wouldn't mind being able to speak though.
