I think all languages are beautiful. I know some Spanish. But, to much my frustration, I am not fluent. I suppose I want to become fluent at this before going on to something else.
But, I’d also like to learn sign language.
Maybe I'd like to learn all of the romance languages.
I’d like to learn Chinese or Japanese…I don’t even know how to decide on this one…
I’d like to learn an African dialect, maybe Swahili. I once had a neighbor that spoke that language, and I was fascinated with listening to her.
Once, I was teaching myself to speak Hawaiian. There are only 12 letters in the Hawaiian alphabet. So, I figured: ‘how hard could it be’? But, then I lost my grandma’s booklet on the subject, and that was the end of that.
I learned a little Creole when I was in Jamaica. I was picking that up easily, but I don’t remember any of it now. 1 week ago

Spanish is coming along really well. Italian looks familiar after picking it up again. Same goes for Dari and Russian. I’m pretty confident that I can stick to studying all the languages for 15 minutes each per day. I’m going to add french to the mix. I don’t think I’ll throw in any Asian languages until I really know the ones I’m currently learning. 2 months ago
I’m an intermediate spanish speaker. The next level is practicing in conversation to become advanced. I’m beginner in Farsi, Italian, and Russian. I’d like to start studying French and Chinese soon. I already have the books for French and will start setting aside time to work toward this goal. I’ve signed up for a conversational meetup. Once I do more self study and move on to intermediate in all of these languages it would be nice to find a study buddy or group. 3 months ago

I’ve been rethinking my approach to this goal and feel that since I get easily overwhelmed by large projects, I need to break things down and clarify what I want as much as possible.
So, I have decided to update my previous list with the level to which I would like to learn them. Also, I am going to work on developing my own system of learning, as what I’ve tried hasn’t worked, so there’s no point in trying to bang my head against a brick wall.
I have split my list into four groups: Pre-GCSE, GCSE, A-Level and University. Just because I still think with the school mindset :) If I can actually get the qualification as well, then that would be great, but it’s more of a guideline really.
This list is flexible – I may decide I want to pursue a language to a higher level or stop at a lower level. I may add or remove languages. I tend to prefer organic growth rather than strict pathways, so I’m going to go with it instead of force myself into something that doesn’t fit me. 22 months ago
