For those who have studied multiple languages on here (or elsewhere), which has been the most fun?

I find German the most fun/interesting, I've had a look at some of the other languages (Russian, Swedish) and for some reason I found it diffiult to "stay interested" in them..

Which languages have you had the most fun with and why?

I think for me of all the languages I'm learning, I find French the most fun. I love, love, love the accent and hope to master it someday. :)

日本語!

Japanese has been the most fun language I have studied. I don't know why, but the sound is amazing, and the grammar is really "cool". Kanji are so fun to learn, altough it's quite the hurculean task :D

日本語は最高です! 文法は難しいです。然し、それは楽しいです!漢字も難しくて多いです、然し、とても楽しいです !

Nihongo wa saikō desu! bunpō wa muzukashii desu. Shikashi, sore wa tanoshii desu! kanji mo muzukashiku te ōi desu, shikashi, totemo tanoshii desu !

Japanese is a little hard, but very rewarding. Once you finally wrap your head around the grammar, it's actually really fun. Sure, first you gotta learn the three writing systems, but the first 2 are fairly easy, and kanji eventually becomes very fun :D

I've sampled around 9 languages. Of them all, American Sign Language has been my favorite I have a local community to practice with. We meet twice a week. I love how tactile and visual it is. And learning about a new culture feels important. The language looks beautiful and allows me to communicate with a few people I would otherwise not have met.

Interesting. I've always wanted to learn , but I don't know anyone who knows ASL, and I don't know any apps or programs . . .

Link fixed.

Right now I'm using http://www.lifeprint.com to get me started. Most of it is free. The video portion of lesson 15-30 costs $20. But before and after that it's free and there are still the vocab lists for those lessons that you can click on to see how the sign is made.

If you enjoyed german you should try danish and dutch, they are similar

For me Swedish is the most fun. My ancestors are from Sweden so I am enjoying learning my ancestors's language. It is also easy for me somehow. I think it is from my grandfather. He speaks Swedish so he teaches me sometimes. If you know what your ancestors language is, and it is on Duolingo maybe you should do what I did. Learn their language.

French. It's beautiful, flowing, musical. People call it the language of music and love. It makes me think of hearts. Pretty, pink hearts. And dancing cats. It's weird, I know. But funny...

I have always loved Norwegian, so it has of course been the most fun to learn both here and elsewhere. And on Duolingo in particular the Norwegian course has some of the most memorable sentences to translate. :)

Surely Turkish. It is fun because of its rigidity of its rules, with few exceptions. :)

For me, it's definitely Polish because I got to live in that country. I used to study the language every single day while I was living there and seeing my progress everywhere I went to, be it the university I attended or the shops I'd been to, was my best satisfaction. But again, I should admit I loved the "shch" sounds of that language, haha.

Right now, I'm studying Russian and I feel like I have as much of an interest. I think I just like Slavic languages :) For example, I've been "exposed" to French for a long while. It was obligatory at my university and I also tried it here on Duolingo. But I never felt "close" to that language, therefore I never liked studying it.

German is probably the most fun. Not sure why. I also really like and am interested in the Norwegian course. I wasn't even expecting to like it that much.

I love Spanish the most. In my opinion, it's very interesting, entertaining, and very fun to speak. I'm only learning two languages (French and Spanish), but I'm not that interested in learning French.

Mapudungun, because it is an agglutinative and polysynthetic language:

yelelkomeaeyu = I'll go only to bring water for you

umagufaluwürkelay = it is said that s/he didn't pretend to sleep
