    Technically, English is a foreign language to me

    as it isn't my first language. But I feel more comfortable in it than in my own mother tongue.

    I tried to learn French,

    but I just couldn't deal with the details/rules that I had to take note. So, I dropped it. Then, I went back to continue on my Japanese & told myself to get through it. I think it is worth keep at least one of the foreign languages you learnt before.

    Two Actually...

    I am currently in the midst of learning two other languages. I am working on German and Japanese. German I am learning more formally than Japanese, while Japanese is kind of just a hobby. I hope to start learning even more of them while I'm in college. :)
