15/15. Not surprising as I'm a multi-lingual European who worked in France, Spain and Italy.

That was a bummer .. no problems with the written portion ... but spoken portion, I have no sound on my computer so I was just guessing everyone and failed them all. Hard to tell when nos sound is coming out.

14/15 I couldn't even hear the 15th even with the sound as high as it would go. Videos are useless.

15/15 I don't speak any of the languages fluently, but I know enough of each to know the difference.

15/15 French, Spanish, and Italian are easy to spot. That makes it easy to differentiate between the other two.

Yes I took Latin in school. I would have gotten them all right if I could have heard what celebs were speaking. Alas, there was no sound.

Also 100%, familiar with the different sounds, but not fluent.
