THE ULTIMATE TELEPHONE GAME: LANGUAGES SPOKEN AT DINNER TONIGHT IN JAPAN

  1. English
    Obviously fluent
  2. Hindi/Urdu
    My parents taught me as a kid
  3. Japanese
    I've picked up some phrases
  4. Nepali
    Google is my friend
  5. A Japanese customer spoke Japanese to the Nepali waiter in the restaurant, who then translated to me in Hindi/Urdu/Nepali, and I then translated for my English-speaking husband.
    We carried on having a conversation this way. It took forever and who knows if it was all translated accurately...
  6. But it was... So. Much. Fun.
