Command of languages

Legend

The below table of language command was made in 2013 through self-assessment. The system used is the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), by the Council of Europe, or a dot system as explained below. The command of a language numbered 8 and higher on this list can be upgraded once I get exposed to it, as when being in a country where it is a national language.
