I don't understand or know Albanian. My knowledge of Vlach is rather basic. They are two totally different languages, even though Albanian has some Latin elements. In the past, many of my (recent) ancestors knew Albanian fluently but that's because they lived in close proximity with Albanians (they also knew Macedonian), or lived in what would later become Albania proper (around Moscopole and Korca regions).

(For example, Romanians could not really understand Albanian.)
