Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and English. The first three have many similarities and are not difficult to learn once you know one of them.

Dutch and English.

Und ein bisschen Deutsch, et un petit peu de Francais

Only what they tried teaching me in high school though.
Come to think of it, I could once also express myself not so fluently in ancient Latin, but that's all gone now...

Or you could just move your ass and buy a book, do some language course.

I didn't learn any language in school in Italy either, we used to do nothing during English teacher lessons..

Depends on how you define well. Finnish is my mother tongue and I use English all the time in the University and in my profession. I could probably use German in a professional setting, but not some of the other languages I know.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

+1. The U.S. is the same way. I've been taking Spanish for 3 years now and haven't learned a lick.
