      I think Arabic is a beautiful language and I am happy to meet another who is interested in my native language. I am trying to learn Dutch

    Nihongo..I'm currently trying to learn it through tutorials. I believe it's worthwhile for anime fans like me since I don't need to bother reading subtitles once I learn the language.

      Anime is what fuels my interest in Japanese. Even watching them with subtitles will give you a sense for the sound of the language and start to foster passive understanding.

      True. You can also learn basic Nihongo by simply watching anime shows, not to mention how enjoyable it is. Hitting two birds with one stone right? haha

    I'd like to learn either Russian, German, or Nahualt. Nahualt is a Mesoamerican language used by a branch of the Aztec people. I have been interested in all three cultures since high school and I believe they would be fun to learn.

      Russian and German both have very complex grammars, but are also very rewarding. Nahualt would be fascinating as a language so incredibly foreign from anything Indo-European.

    I am thinking about moving way down as far south in Texas as I can. I would like to be a Ranch Owner down there some day. I will learn Spanish fluently when I move there. You can possibly logically reduce as to why. Possibly, I would have a job down there, where I would actually use Spanish.

    I already know French, and next on my list is Spanish. Because a lot of people in Texas know Spanish, also it is kind of necessary given my location. But also because of my business, it would help.

      Spongy0llamaposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Spanish is not as difficult if you already know another Romance language (like French). Just keep on top of it and you'll have no trouble gaining proficiency. You may even consider Portuguese, Italian, or Romanian next smile

      The difficulty I have is keeping the two separated in my mind. Two is my limit. Writing, no problem. Actually speaking the lanuage... It might take years.

    i would like to learn Korean and Japanese languages. These two languages sound almost the same. I love their culture and courtesy. Hope that one day i could visit their countries and speak to them. Another way to gain knowledge and expand my spoken languages.

    I always wanted to learn to speak Russian. French would probably be more useful to me though.

      Russian is very complicated but very rewarding. Not many young people have been learning since the Cold War ended, so it can make you really stand out to employers.

      I wish that they had offered Russian instead of Spanish when I was in High school.

    I have a number of languages on my list and really hope I get the time and opportunity to study them all to at least some degree. I started with French because it's what I was taught in high school. I also think it's a beautiful language that simplifies the process of learning other Romantic languages, so that will hopefully be the first that I learn to fluency. I'm also extremely interested in Dutch, although I'm not entirely sure why. I just love the way it sounds.
