After reading the "Hiya, all! New here." post, I am wondering in how many languages the Fiddlerman family can introduce itself. I am thinking something like:

"Hi, my name is ______. I play violin." 

The challenge is on!!

こんいちは見なさん、なまえはテーリです。バイヨリンをべんきょうして。

Sorry, I think I spelt violin wrong, lol

I was born with nothing,

As i said on "Hiya, all! New here"

"Bonjour, je m'apelle '______'. Je suis violoniste."
or

"Bonsoir, mon nom est '_____'. Je suis violoniste."

 

I think we could also say it in german :

 

"Hallo, ich heiße '_____'. Ich bin ein Violinenspieler."

That is two more !

Let us not forget Norwegian!
