    I study Spanish at school

    but I would like to learn Korean, Japanese, French etc because they seem like really interesting languages + I like the idea of being able to fluently have a conversation with someone who does not speak English.

    I Want To-

    but i get frustrated easily... I recently was listening to some Gaelic (and that's on the top of my want to learn list) and i was baffled by the very soft sounding letters- it's very subtle. But on my fantasy list is 1. Gaelic 2. Spanish 3. Latin 4. French 5. German 6...

    Being born into two different cultures,

    I had the opportunity to grow up bilingual. I am fluent in both Spanish and English. I feel like this fact has motivated me to learn as many languages as I possibly can in my lifetime. Currently, I am working on Italian and Korean. Regardless, I love learning about all cultures...

    Each language you learn is an open doorway to a

    whole new culture, be it through books or music. I am hoping to add several more to those I am already fluent in.

    I love learning languages!

    When I was 11 I tried to teach myself Russian, which was an epic fail, because I didn't quite understand how to learn a language, and just tried to memorize a bunch of random vocab and put them together in "sentences" without paying attention to verb conjugation, etc. then a...

    I was born in Brazil,

    I suppose I should just start with one---my

    schooling gave me the rudiments of two other languages--but I never mastered them. A bucket list thing.

    Languages Are Amazing

    I think it would be amazing to be able to speak many languages fluently. To me a language is a key part of a country's culture and so if you can speak it fluently, you almost become a part of that. I can already speak English, French and German.... but I'd love to learn another...

    Why Learning Languages Is Fun And Useful

    As a child I came from a working class background and in our area we spoke with a very broad accent and dialect. I suppose it was a form of English! When I started working in an office I was very conscious of my accent and wanted to go to elocution lessons but that was much too...
