I wonder, how many languages did Freddie know and could speak... Does anyone knows?

Excuse me, you saw interviews with Freddie speaking these languages??? Or you just saw the translation into these languages in the bottom of your screen? Darling, then it doesn't mean that Freddie spoke those languages.

Don't worry, I hope you are not stupid and that you don't pretend to be stupid. That's ok, dear.

His knowledge of Japanese was just a couple of words and same counts for German although he lived there for quite a long time. Freddie certainly wasn't a master of languages :)

ontopic:
It was very odd that Freddie's English accent faded away during the 70's into the 80's, he got this weird American accent...:o

I donĀ“t know how many languages spoke Freddie, but I'm sure he didn't speak Spanish (Mike Moran yes)

I'm quite sure he didn't speak the "Bora-Bora" language either.

Every artist or a group playing in a certain country always tries to speak, to say some kind phrases in their native language, but of course it doesnt mean they know these languages, I think the same or similarly was with Freddie too.

I believe Freddie spoke english on the boarding school he went to (I think St Peters is an english school...right?)

Yes, it was an "english" boarding school, however Freddie's family was essentially indian (of Persian roots). Hindi is the national language of India.

My dentist went to school with Freddie at St. Peters, and said that Freddie could speak and understand hindi (as most people can in india).

This was a little known fact of Freddie because he never "admitted" to being indian, but he was, in fact just that.

Seriously? I haven't ever noticed this! What's a good example of his accent sounding Americanized?
