I can hold my own in a basic conversation in German if needed.

I can also speak a very fluent Dutch, though that only happens by accident when I try to speak French and end up throwing in the odd German word.

If you are looking to learn better conversational Spanish (Mexican) just get a job prepping or doing dish in a non corporate restaurant. The restaurant industry is currently running on a backbone of Mexican workers. That's how I and most of the peopleI know learned and perfected our conversational Spanish and the up shot is you get paid to do it.

I know a fair bit of it, I'm just not perfect at conjugating for past tense etc.

I could hold my own in a very casual conversation for about 30 minutes, so long as it's all present tense :v

The preterite can be a bit*#. Best way to get better is to immerge yourself into a Spanish speaking situation at all possible times. It just takes a lot of practice and patience.

I am native Italian, I can speak a decent English and a very basic Portuguese. I don't count the couple of local Italian dialects (almost, but not quite different languages) I can hold myself in.

Oh, follow-up questions!

Is it easier to learn English than another language (a lot of Mexican friends have given varied answers)

Learn to read and write english, yes.

Learn to speak and understand spoken english, no.

My spanish is about a step below fluent. Though English is my native language, I would say Spanish is at least a little bit harder. Still, both are probably among the easiest to learn when compared to others like Mandarin or Finnish
