I'm male, born in the United States. I wouldn't say that I "studied" Portuguese, French, or Romanian, but I heard them a lot growing up. I hesitate to call myself "fluent" in Spanish, but it certainly flows out of me. If you pick the region and the conversation topic carefully, then I will seem very advanced in Spanish. If you pick the wrong country and want me to hold a conversation about farm animals, you will be immediately disappointed.
