and I adopted two more specific goals (learn Spanish and learn Russian). Now I’ve studied Russian for more than a month and I will continue learning it for at least until the end of this academic year.

The first priorities are keeping up my German and refreshing my Swedish. After that (maybe next year) I will start with Spanish and perhaps later I will try the basics of Russian.
There are some Russian construction workers at my workplace and while listening to them talking, I realized that I really like the way how the Russian language sounds. That made me want to learn Russian and I’ll probably attend to a basic course after my exchange year. I find Russian quite exotic, because not many Finns can speak it and the Russian alphabet differs from the Finnish one. Being able to speak Russian would also be a nice addition to my CV.
I like studying languages. Finnish is my native language, I am fluent in English, I have pretty good skills in Swedish and an okay knowledge of German. Because I now have the opportunity to learn languages for free at the university I’d like to learn yet another language. Any suggestions?
Spanish seems to be a very popular choice and it might be a useful language as well, because it is so widely spoken in South America. Knowing Russian could also be an advantage in the future when I try to get a job after graduation. The same goes for Chinese. Italian interests me because the swordsmanship style I practice is based on the writings of an Italian master. If I knew Italian, I could study the original manuals, which would be great.
So many choices…
