But there are many other languages that you might hear here, England is known for its cultural diversity. Indian languages are very common in places though, especially near here.
I also take French and Spanish in school, but I'm nowhere near fluent.

Of course, the school is trying to keep everyone learning french under the threat that certain colleges won't take people with secon languages but... wha? it doesn't mean it HAS to be French. give me a break.
So I have friends here spazzing about that and calling me crazy for dropping the course in Grade 8. I'm not going to need it.
besides that, well...
We have a lot of different backgrounds here, so you'll hear native, Indian, chinese (especially chinese in Vancouver area) SOMETIMES japanese, spanish... etc.
It's fairly nice.

I take French at school, but I'm not very good at it!

Since I live in the London though, which is the multicultural capital of the country (and I think of Europe too?) I hear lots of languages every day. Most of my friends speak second languages because of their backgrounds. In some small areas you might not actually hear any english walking down the street. :P
I am quite ignorant though so I couldn't possibly name all of or tell apart all the languages I hear but I guess these are the most common: Punjabi, Bangla, Chinese, Polish, Japanese, Turkish ... and I don't really know what else, it all sounds foreign to me heh.
Then there are some parts of the country where the only language you will hear is English, I think.
