M: How many laguages can you speak?
W: I can speak French and German.

W: Two. French and Spanish.
M: And how well can you speak them?
W: Well, French was my best subject at school. I can read and write it pretty well.

M: Jane and Sally are friends. They are both married and they are very proud of their husbands. One day, they met each other and they started talking about their husbands. According to Jane, her husband is big and strong and handsome. He is also very much of a sportsman. He can swim and ski, and he can play several ball games such as football, rugby and cricket. Sally's husband, however, seems to be just the opposite. He is physically neither big nor strong, but he excels in intelligence. He is good at languages and can speak six languages, including French, German, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, and Japanese. Besides, he is much of a family man. He can cook, sew, and iron. Indeed, as Sally puts it, he is a good husband
