How many languages at one time?

Out of curiosity, what are the most languages you've studied at one time?

I'm currently taking French in college (and I want to be a French minor, I might double major if I have enough time, but I started taking French kind of late in my college career). I decided to study Zulu on the side and now after playing a second run through Okami it's sparked my interest in studying Japanese again. I'm already slightly familiar with the language, as I've studied it off and on since I was about ten.

I've never tried to learn multiple languages at once before, only one at a time. I was wondering what others have done. (And yes, this is totally a "time to show off" post for you guys! I'm sure many of you have tried to learn a lot at once... ) I'm also curious how successfully you learned them/how far you got in your studies.

There's probably been a post like this before, but I've been here several years and don't remember one and there's always new members every day!

  • Polish translation, please

    A coworker gave my dad this bottle of vodka (it has grass in it!), and I'm dying to know what the text says. Can anyone help?

  • some Arabic (?) phrases

    These are from a novel from Philip Roth. I'm sure the author doesn't speak Arabic, so presumably he had somebody to translate and transliterate…

  • グズグズ meaning

    I am having trouble understanding what "グズグズ" means in this sentence: あのグズグズだった頃の俺の心がお前となぁなぁになる事をまだ許していないのは確かだ Could someone explain?
