Hey there @lvjy!

I believe the Common App has a section for languages where you can fill in the different languages you speak and your fluency/proficiency level in each of them. I definitely think that you should include the languages you are proficient/fluent in.

I would add it, even if it doesn't apply directly to your major knowing multiple languages is always a plus and it won't hurt you in the application. Common app has a spot to list them all and your level. It also helps display to college an aspect of who you are!
