quampuranitesList of Six

In a google search of top languages to learn, I ran across an article titled Dr. Arguelles’ Six Most Important Lanugages. In this blog post, it is argued that important languages to learn are relative to the indiviudal and consist of the following:
1. Classical Languages of one’s own culture
2. Major living languages of one’s broader culture
3. The international language
4. Exotic languages

For me personally, this means learning to read Latin and Ancient Greek. Or maybe I’ll skip Greek and learn Old English. Major living languages of my broader culture in the western hemisphere are Spanish and Portugese. By birth, I already speak the international language, but perhaps Chinese, Russian, Hindi, Japanese or French or German could be added in. Exotic languages could be anything, but for me, it would be strategically vital languages in the field of medicine, or the armed forces, as I am serving in the military. This could be Dari, Pashto, Arabic for DoD purposes, or Swahili, Indonesian, or Hebrew just because.

I suppose its time for a decision. After taking an hour to write this and based on what I have previously studied, I will narrow down to six (okay, seven… O KAY, eight) Latin, Ancient Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian, Hindi, and Indonesian. These will be my primary focus.

I know I’ll have intellectual wanderlust, so any other languages I wish to temporarily delve into will have to consist only of learning travel worthy phrases. Travel is another one of my 43things. 17 months ago
