How do you choose which languages to learn? Is it by difficulty level or popularity? Or do you choose to learn the languages of the countries that you are from? Do you have any favorite languages? What are the best languages to learn on Duolingo?

Choose languages that are interesting to you, otherwise motivation will be much harder. If you're motivated, difficulty won't be an issue for you. Not letting the characters/tones of Chinese bother me even though people say it's hard. I know I loved visiting China and want to back. I loved visiting Italy, though that's a less popular choice of a romance language I feel like. Go with your interests.

Spanish was by a burning desire to reclaim part of my lost heritage so there was never, in my mind, a choice. It simply had to be. French was always my most favorite language so I'm learning that for myself. I'm also working on Italian and Portuguese as these are now significantly easier after becoming fluent in Spanish and learning so much French. I love how German sounds so rough yet awesome at the same time so I'll concentrate on that afterwards.

You'd have to choose which ones excite you. Then to split them up, you can choose which cultures - from the places where those languages are spoken - you like best. Then inside that culture they have TV shows, literature, music and much more to help you engage more.

You'll then find learning your new language more fun and easy because 1. you like the language itself and 2. you've found things to help you engage more - things you actually enjoy.

If you don't choose the languages that you love, you'll get bored and you'll learn less. Ask yourself which languages or you interested in, it can be the language itself or the countries where it's spoken.
