What kind of English do you speak?

In our home we speak English and Spanish and recite various prayers in Latin. A family we know speaks a variety of languages - largely English and German. One of the priests we know speaks French among the many languages he knows. Our eldest daughter has often sung songs that are Gaelic and one of our favourite groups, the Rankin Family, sings often in Gaelic. So it is little surprise that Elsa today came up to me and warbled some strange sounds and then asked me "What kind of English was I speaking Mummy?"

I would LOVE to learn Gaelic. I know American-English, a bit of German and a few Spanish phrases but I am convinced that all my children while babies and small toddlers spoke Chinese.
