For me, I consider a language "done" when I only use it and not study it. I never ever study English for example, so that one is definitely "done". Of course it is not perfect and it could improve, but it does not really interest me that much, I prefer to move on to other languages. I study French only because I want university points for it, but other than that it is also "done". I use my French to talk to friends and read books, but I don't do any exercises or actively study vocabulary. I understand everything people say to me in English and French, and I think that is a good sign I don't have to be too worried about imperfections when I speak. It's not like my Swedish is always perfect either ;)

Sorry for re-digging the thread, but reading this I can't help but think in what level all those polyglots think their languages are "done" respectively.

Hah, far as I'm concerned, nothing wrong with digging up old threads. If the actual people are sparce here, we can still converse with the ghosts from the past.
