I speak four languages fluently, have basic competency in two more, and I am doing a PhD in math. That being said, I always felt that my strongest area in foreign languages is grammar.
Edit: Also, I just remembered that a while back I met a fellow math PhD who has been living in my country for only 2.5 years, and has an uncanny command of my native language. It wasn't just that he didn't make any mistakes, he literally had no accent and could pass for a native. One of the very few times I have people who have learned a foreign language perfectly as adults. (N.B. Being able to pronounce words so that native speakers undestand them, and pronouncing them exactly as native speakers do, are two COMPLETELY different things).
