    Learning Vietnamese..

    .quite slowly. Trying to learn to be able to speak with my partner's family and also not to have to rely on others when we visit Vietnam. :) It's pretty intimidating at times though. Tonal languages are not easy...at least for me I suppose. I think I try to pronounce things too...

    I'm in the process of learning Turkish.

    It's an amazingly beautiful language which fits the culture. I've only just started, but I'm determined to become fluent. I'm aiming to one day visit Turkey, Istanbul. It looks gorgeous there <3

    I am learning Spanish at school (year 2)

    and Classical Greek on my own. I've not progressed much in Ancient Greek, but my kind brother got me a book, so that should get me going. It's a hard language to learn, especially since I can't take a class or anything, but it is an important and beautiful language. My sister is...

    I'm in a Spanish class in school

    but during the summer my sister and I are visiting Nigeria. My dad was supposed to teach me how to speak Yoruba but he just gave me the alphabet and told me to study. That was 5 years ago. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and learn by myself. A lot harder said than...

    Hablas Hebrew?

    I already know quite a bit of Spanish, but since I never use it, I find I understand less and less. My newest endeavor is learning Hebrew. It's easy to translate the symbols into words, but hard to know what you're saying! At my age, it's hard to learn anything...

    I am going to India for a few months, so I have been trying to learn Gujarati. I know very little and I am worried that I won't be able to communicate with anyone. But I am going to continue to learn when I am there and hopefully I will be able to speak it fairly well by the end...

    Kake and kacke sounds the same.

    Kake in Norwegian language means cake and kacke in German language means sh*t. One time after having a cake with my mother in law.. i told her.."Danke für kake mama." I realized I just thanked her for sh*t. Face palm.

    I'm using the website Duolingo to learn Spanish.

    The grammar is difficult, and I'm not very good at it yet, but I plan to keep learning until I'm fluent. It's very interesting, and I wish I could go and visit somewhere where the most widely spoken language is Spanish.
