Language proficiency:
Romanian and Hungarian for obvious reasons. My knowledge of English stems partly from the fact that I spent two years in college in England (1968-69) and I started my Ph.D. degree work and studies at the Department of Chemistry, University of Florida (Gainesville, FL.). French I know because I have studied intensively this language, starting from primary school.
