Just English, although since sending DD1 to a FI school (DD2 will join her next year) I'm starting to understand and read more French. I still can't speak it though.

Speak:
English - mother tongue
French - pretty well
Spanish - well enough to get by

Understand (speech):
English - mother tongue
French - well - unless they are using a lot of Quebecois slang
Spanish - I can understand the Spanish accent very well along with most of the South American accents. The Mexican accent I have a hard time understanding.
German - I can get the gist of the conversation because there are so many words that are similar to English.

Write:
English - well
French - pretty well
Spanish - not well

All 3 with English.

I took French up to grade 9, but don't remember much of it. I can understand some conversations though.
