What Language Would You Like to Learn?

I'm Asking: What Language Would You Like to Learn?

Recently, the topic of languages came up while out for pizza with a new friend. I was so impressed when she told me that she's well versed in four languages, and it got me thinking about what other languages I'd like to include in my repertoire. Besides English, I'm pretty solid in Spanish, but it would be so much fun to learn something new. Discovering different languages is a fantastic way to boost your resume, and taking classes or purchasing learning material can be considered a personal investment.

What language(s) would you like to learn?

Since I was little I've wanted to be fluent in French. I'm minoring in it, almost at the 300 level, been taking it for 8 years now, and still not fluent. Conversational, maybe? So I still say French. And I'd love to take a few courses in Italian, since it has kind of always fascinated me. And Latin, too. Plus I took a semester of Greek, and if I could snap my fingers and know a language, I'd probably choose that.

I speak English (First) and studied Japanese for 4 years so I'm pretty good with it. I wish I could remember French, though. :( I just kind of dropped it and never picked it up again..

I want to perfect my French and I'm always looking for strange english words to stun people woth (I'm from Denmark so English isn't my first language - Danish is)... I'd like to improve my German, but that will probably never happen as I simply do not get it. When I feel confident in my French I'd like to learn Italian and Spanish...

I would like to brush up on my french and learn more spanish since it's used so commonly in California. I would also love to learn Italian and Polish as it's my heritage and German because it would be fun to yell when I speak ha-ha

@spectra - it depends where you are in Ukraine. In Western Ukraine there's more nationalism and people there speak Ukrainian more than Russian. In the East, you have more people who are Pro-Russia and therefore speak Russian.

I started taking French seriously last October. If all goes well, I might be able to take the first level of proficiency exams at the end of this year :) Japanese didn't work out, it was too expensive

Italian or French. I think people can sound sexy talking in these languages but I think I would have an easier time with Italian since its pretty similar to Spanish and I know some spanish.
