We learn in [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Books/Deathly Hallows/Chapter 35|''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'']] that Harry's ability to speak Parseltongue is actually related to the soul shard that [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Lord Voldemort|Voldemort]] lost when trying to kill Harry. That soul shard had attached itself to Harry, and was the source of this ability, plusas well as the ability to see into Voldemort's mind. The soul shard was destroyed in [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Books/Deathly Hallows/Chapter 34|''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'']], and Harry's ability to speak Parseltongue went with it, according to the author.
The reason that Dumbledore can speak Parseltongue is never made entirely clear, but it is mentioned that he could speak some hundreds of languages, including Mermish and Gobbledegook. Having him understand Parseltongue as well would be relatively simple; apparently the ease of learning a language increases with the number of languages learned, even for Muggles.
While it is not directly associated with the language, we note that Harry is usually unable to tell whether he is speaking or hearing Parseltongue. When addressing the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets, for instance, he only realizes that he hadn't spoken Parseltongue when Ron tells him it was English. No real explanation for this is given to us, nor is there any explanation for why Harry can tell the difference when visiting the House of Gaunt in ''Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince'', but not in the following book in Bathilda Bagshot's house. We suppose it may have something to do with environment; Harry may be more likely to expect Parseltongue from the clutch of odd people in the Gaunt shack than in Bathilda's house. It is possible hat this lessened ability to tell the difference came about because the ability was simply dropped on him; if he had to work to learn the language, as we suppose Dumbledore did, he would be much more likely to differentiate. As it is, it is something he has always known, and so seems as easy for him as English. This inability to distinguish is a minor plot point at two places in ''Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'', and a somewhat larger one a Bathilda's house in ''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows''.
