After talking with my friend this morning I've decided to challenge me learning 5 languages in 5 years (starting when I finish my degree, that's when I'm sure I won't drop the challenge). My list is

1. German
2. Arab
3. Russian
4. ???
5. ???

I'll keep you updated


That's is a really nice goal! I wish I could do it too :)
I would love to learn a language that is near extinction like Cornish, Elfdalian, or something similar

@selea I find easy to learn languages when something motivates me. I wouldn't be able to learn those kind of languages :blob_grinning_sweat:


Would it be motivating that you could speak a completely strange language and therefore being able to talk in secret messages?

@selea Mmmm, if I can talk with someone special (someone that I really want to talk with) maybe. Speaking in another language is not that secret, I've discovered that always someone's understands you 😂


Well if you find someone speaking Cornish or Elvdalian - you should consider yourself lucky because you can count those people on one hand :)

@yabirgb You chose the easiest ones, didn't you? 😂

It's a great project, good luck!

@ondiz I really feel motivated to do it. My target is a B2/C1 in each one but I don't want to drop it so everything at it's time

@yabirgb I think it's feasible and also a lot of fun (which is the best part!).

I'm learning my fifth language now and would like to learn a language with a different writing system, so I'm very interested in your (future) experience 😊

@yabirgb Make 1. Latin and 2. Greek and the other ones will come all by themselves.

@xiroux MMmmmm. Latin seems interesting but I don't find Greek a good target for me. Thanks!!!

@yabirgb Ah, you have that covered with Russian... You should consider Swedish, that opens you a door to Norwegian and Danish!

@xiroux My nightmare is lowercase Xi. 3 years doing Analysis and yet I rarely make it nicely

@yabirgb Deutsch? Braucht kein Mensch!

Ich kann's auch gar nicht mehr vor lauter angelsächsischem Geschwätz.
