[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=09tk Teng Jian Khoo] '09 can speak it tolerably, but will not be understood by pretty much everyone on campus. Bar the Taiwanese.
Noemi Fernandez '09 can fake it pretty well while ordering you a drink at a cafe or bar, your choice.

:Teng Jian Khoo '09 speaks this at home. Somemore now got Singaporeans here dee, can tok crap with them liao - so shiok!
[[Carl Vos '09]] mom is french, and I know a lot, but havn't spoken it in a while. I can get by alright.
[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=09bdk Brian Kim '09] owes much of his sanity to the fact that dead French men write better books than most people.
[[Emilie Voight '09]] knows that you'll get mocked if you say "neanmoins" in casual conversation.
[[Carl Vos '09]] is taking German and will be spending the summer of 2006 in Munich and Berlin.
[[Walker Matthews '08]] knows entirely too much Greek, and for some inexplicable reason is moderately capable of reading something as complicated as Thucydides without actually being to conjugate verbs (a shortcoming he hopes to correct by the end of the year).

[[Jason Leith]] rejects the notion that a velar trill is impossible. It is, however, so ugly a sound that not even languages like Dutch and Danish have adopted it. He uses IPA when indicating pronunciation in his music.
[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=08tjd Tom Derbish '08] has stumbled through four years of Japanese at Williams and is going to stumble through years more of it in Japan.
As of now, [http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=09bjd Brian Delmolino '09] can say the following: "I am American. I cannot speak Korean. Where is the bathroom?"

[[Jack Nelson '07]] speaks relatively fluently, especially when inebriated on some good ol' Mack

[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=09bdk Brian Kim '09] used to beg his Russian teacher for borscht in the middle of the night. It was delicious, by the way.
[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=09nyi Nina Ivanova '09]
[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=08slh Son '08] knows one phrase: "
ну Заяц погоди!"

[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=08slh Son '08] what does "phuc" mean? - It's pronounced different than what you think; but it means "happiness" (kinda make sense ;-))
