Language Bucket List

I mentioned this on somebody else's discussion, so I making a discussion about it. I LOVE languages. I love them so much I created a Language Bucket List (LBL). My goal is to be at least an intermediate level in all of them. Bold means, I am learning them at the moment via Duolingo or School. Italics mean, that I want to start that language soon. And no effect means, that I won't be studying that language for a while.

  1. Arabic
  2. Bulgarian
  3. Czech
  4. Dutch
  5. Danish
  6. French
  7. German
  8. Irish
  9. Italian
  10. Japanese
  11. Korean
  12. Mandarin Chinese
  13. Polish
  14. Portuguese
  15. Romanian
  16. Russian
  17. Spanish
  18. Swedish
  19. Swahili

A total of 19 languages. I will add more to the list in the near future if I'm interested in the language. What's your Language Bucket List?

Well, for me it would be:

1) Australian English (I need to catch the accent!)

2) ESPERANTO <3 <3 <3

3) Japanese

4) Korean

5) Portuguese

And that would be enough :)

Same reason why people with curly hair want straight hair, and vise versa. When you don't have it, it's exotic and desirable. And by the way, I love the down undah accent!

Men is it ok if you can teach me Polish or Russian since you're fluent in them. There are sooooooooo many Russian tourists in Philippines now and I want to learn Russian so that it's easier and plus Russian influenced so many Central Asian countries which I think is pretty cool. What are good videos, movies would you suggest?

I tried learning Korean, Italian and a bit of Thai before, but I decided I'm just going to be fluent in the six official languages of the United Nations (unless they add another one).

So I'm starting to learn Chinese and Russian, while hoping to learn Arabic in the future to prevent my head from exploding.

and to improve my English

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/squiggy.fl

I have no idea how to make things bold.. I do not wish to be Intermediate or advanced in all of them.

My language bucket list:

  1. English. Yes I want to improve my english despite it being my native tongue. I still have difficulty with certain aspects of the language. I mainly have difficulty with grammatical concepts and punctuation. My dyslexia makes me have trouble with spelling too. I would also like to increase my vocabulary.

  2. Japanese. I used to have some basic japanese under my belt but I have forgotten a lot. I would like to be intermediate in Japanese. I would like to branch out into informal japanese.

  3. Korean. I consider it do be an ugly language to the ear, but the dramas on tv are spectacular. The writing system is easy so I suppose I am influenced by that.

  4. Mandarin Chinese. I wish to only have a basic knowledge. I just want to know that if I am stranded, I can find my way to an airport, or at least to a restroom.

  5. Irish. I would like to dip my toes in just a bit.

  6. Latin. I would like to get far enough with latin to be able to make connections with words in other languages. I want to see the stones that are part of the castle.

  7. Hindi. I would like to get to a basic level so I can better enjoy bollywood films.

  8. Arabic. This is a useful language to have, and the writing is pretty. Some basic level is fine for me.

  9. Old English. Because I want to see where we started.

  10. Hebrew. Just get my feet wet.

I wish I did all of #4 before I went to China! I learned the hard way that apparently "bathroom" and "washroom" refer to two different things. There are too many different ways to refer to a restroom..."weishengjian", "xishoujian", "cesuo", "maofang", "yushi", "shouxijian", "guanxishi", "toilet", etc.

I wonder why you want to learn hebrew? (I'm a native speaker)

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/squiggy.fl

Why wouldn't a person want to learn it?

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/eyal.horow

Hard and not common language. But don't be demotivated if you wanna learn it so I wish you good luck :)

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/kimberlytylr

Then I have a question for you; just how much difference is there between the current spoken language and what you might learn in an Ancient/Biblical Hebrew course?

February 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/eyal.horow

Current hebrew is influenced from Yiddish and English, so it'd be easier for you to learn it (I see you learn German, which is very close to Yiddish). The Biblical Hebrew is diffrent in grammer and vocabulary which makes it a bit hard to understand but it still the same language. Like reading Shakespeare maybe for current English speaker

February 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/nicolefoy

The Shakespeare comparison is the best explanation I've heard for the differences in Biblical/modern Hebrew, thanks! I am hoping to learn Hebrew too and can't wait for it to show up here!

February 13, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Criculann

My Language Bucket List consists of all language with more than 100 million speakers as I want to be able to converse with as many people as possible in their mother tongue as possible + a few others:

  1. Mandarin (Right now I only have 2 lessons in school each week. So not making that much progress :( )
  2. Spanish
  3. Hindi
  4. Arabic
  5. Portuguese
  6. Bengali
  7. Russian
  8. Japanese
  9. Esperanto
  10. Italian
  11. Latin
  12. French
  13. Korean

For now this list is only a draft so it'll be changed most likely. I've decided for the most spoken languages because I love every language for what makes them specifically that language. e.g. I love English for its simplicity but I also love Latin for its complexity. This means it doesn't matter which language I learn, I will love it so why not learn the most useful?

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/ReidHT

Why did you say you only put languages with only 100 million speakers? Because Esperanto has way less then that, Italian spoken by 85 million speakers total, Korean has less then 100 million, Latin has way less then 100 million... So why?

October 3, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Criculann

Well, I stated "+ a few others". But anyway: Esperanto because I want to find out more about this language and the concept of auxlangs. Combined with only 3 months learning time this easily becomes a part of my list. Latin because it's so complex. I probably won't try to become fluent but getting a rough idea how all this complexity works together is really interesting from a linguistic point of view. Italian is a beautiful language and easier for me to learn as I already have a relatively good grasp on Spanish. And finally Korean because the script looks awesome and it might also be a useful language in the future.

October 3, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/ReidHT

Oh. Didn't notice that! Sorry!

October 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/ericwdhs

Nice idea. Here's mine in the order I intend to become fluent in them:

  1. Spanish - I took some classes for it in high school, but didn't get much out. I'm relearning it now.
  2. Italian
  3. Portuguese
  4. French
  5. German

And now for non-Duolingo languages (as of yet):

  1. Malay/Indonesian - I'm half Malaysian and sort of regret not knowing the language.
  2. Japanese
  3. Mandarin Chinese
  4. Korean
  5. Russian
  6. Arabic
  7. Hindi
  8. Bengali
  9. Swahili
  10. Filipino

If I get that far, I won't stop. I'll probably just start going down the list of languages by world popularity.

Do Quenya/Sindarin (Tolkien Elvish) and Klingon count? I'd like to learn those as well.

Hope that made sense lool

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/_Fulvius

I got the general idea of what you're saying lol. and do you mean the way of speaking it? cuz if it is, it would be "paraan ng pagsasalita" which literally means the way of speaking. or do you mean "the way it is said."

anywho overall it is quite understandable, but the words are kind of colloquial. in today's everyday speech, we use verbs from English but we just conjugate it like our verbs. for example: lets use the verb drive: Nagdrive: Drove Magdadrive: will drive Kakadrive: just drove

you get the point, I wish lol. This is caused by American influence on us. but what you said is understandable. you can say that and still be understood. Good luck learning! :)

February 9, 2014

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/idshanks

There are people out there who speak 20+ languages and manage to use them all! Given that we have the internet at our disposal, it is very easy to connect with a native speaker of many of the world's languages and have a conversation. :)

February 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/0liwia

I'm guessing you got downvoted because you are actually right ;-) I myself have actually only 2 languages on my bucket list, and I still wonder when I'll be "done" (i.e. fluent in both) so 10 to 18 languages... But hey, if people have a lot of time on their hands...

February 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/ReidHT

Most of my languages on mine are just time-killers in case I have any time on my hands. French is my main language I want to learn, and if I can't learn the others that will be the one I'd choose. I've always been interested in Romanian, so that would be next. Then I'd choose between Italian, Spanish or Portuguese to focus on. And hopefully I would be able to fit Catalan or Latin in, or both. But seriously, French is my top priority, so my list isn't as crazy as it looks.

That's amazing! I've been formally learning French for something like a decade, and have (apparently!) reached C1 competence, but I've never tried writing in French. I'll have to give it a go, though, I think it will probably even help me become more comfortable with the language :) keep it up! (PS. - A lingot for your courage, and for the inspiration you've given me :D )

In that order. The only language I want to be totally fluent in is Spanish, but I would really enjoy learning the others and being able to write in them.

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/koboldmaki

Already know: German (native), English (fluent)

Learning:
1. Spanish (upper intermediate)

3. Hungarian (just started on Duo)

Want to learn:
4. French (learned it in school, but it’s very, very rusty)
5. Greek

In an ideal world with too much time on my hands the list would be a lot longer (Icelandic, Low German...), but these are the ones I realistically want to learn in the next couple of decades.

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/sgedwards90

My list is short and is just the "Big 3" of European languages. I don't think I have the commitment that a lot of other people here have.

  1. German. My main goal, I want to master it (C2 level).
  2. French. For travel and general usefulness.
  3. Spanish. For travel and general usefulness.

Would like to learn, but probably never will:

  1. Russian. I would love to travel to Eastern Europe and interact with the locals in their own language.
  2. Swedish
  3. Dutch
February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/0liwia

Your list looks a bit like mine! I'm also into main European languages... Though I have German and Italian left to master (#2 and #5 since English is #1)

February 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/HerrArbo

Here is mine, roughly in order of priority:

  1. High German (Hochdeutsch)

  2. (North)Welsh ('Gog' Cymraeg)

And:

  1. French (Français)

  2. Russian (Pycckий)

  3. Other variants of German, primarily Austrian and then maybe Swiss. (Österreichisches Deutsch und Sweitzer Deütsch)

In no particular order, other than the opportunity to learn them:

  1. Polish (Polski)

  2. Norwegian (Norsk)

  3. Scottish Gaelic, Manx Gaelic or Cornish

  4. Japanese 日本語

  5. British Sign Language

  6. Khoekhoe, the most widely spoken language with clicks I know of!

  7. Esperanto! (Esperanton)

One, two, and five are the ones I am most serious about. The position of Austrian is subject to change, because as soon as I am good at German I would be interested in exploring the Austrian dialect.

This is a very long term list, and currently I am actively working towards the first two. Who knows, maybe one day I will know all 12. I am patient!

If I become as good at German as Luigi from the Simpsons or Manuel from Fawlty Towers are at English, I will be happy enough!

9- Aramaic?

10- Sanskrit

11- Modern Greek

I think this is a cool idea. Here it is and the reasons why: (using Bold as learning or slowly learning, italics as want to start soon, and no effects meaning I don't plan on learning these any time soon and only if I have time to, and bold and italics means started to learn but put on hold and I want to start them soon, bold and italics can also mean I'm working through them slowly but haven't exactly started)

1 French. I have French in my family history and it has become a sort of tradition for my family to learn French.

2 Mandarin Chinese. It looks hard but I do want to learn it! But this is a maybe. Might replace this spot with Hawaiian.

3 Esperanto, I guess. It might be interesting to know a language that was created out of others to become a united language.

4 Romanian. I don't know any (update as of September 2014: I'm working throush the reverse course.) but it sounds like a really interesting language. I put this on hold for now, waiting for it to come on Duolingo if that ever happens.

5 Spanish, mainly for the sole purpose of communicaton.

6 Danish. One day I hope to go to Denmark and ask for danishes in Danish. Maybe. Huge maybe.

7 Italian, since with knowledge of the romance languages it would hopefully be easy to learn.

8 Portuguese, for the same reasons as Italian.

9 Croatian, I have Crotian ancestry.

10 Bulgarian. I have Bulgarian ancestry, too.

11 Irish. I've always thought of it as interesting. Also a maybe.

12 Afrikaans. I'm gonna stop with reasons now.

13 Japanese.

14 Turkish as soon as it comes on Duolingo

15 Swedish. Possibly.

16 Arabic. Big maybe.

17 German. Possibly.

18 Hebrew. Maybe. But it would be cool.

Okay, so here's a more updated one:

For sure: French

Second priority: Romanian, Catalan, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Latin

If I have more time: Turkish, Afrikaans, Irish, Hawaiian, Greek, Esperanto

For heritage reasons: Bulgarian and Croatian

If I have a lot of time: German, Mandarin Chinese, possibly a choice between Galician and Romansh, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew

2019 Update: it's been so long since I wrote this wow I think I definitely have a shorter list now.

Really want to learn: French, Spanish

Would like to learn but not a main priority: Arabic

Would be cool to dabble in: Catalan, Hawaiian, Croatian, Greek, Mandarin

Another 2019 Update: I feel like my list is always changing and I'm always getting interested in new languages. But to be honest, I feel like this is the most accurate list for me at this point:

Primary - French, Spanish

Secondary - Mandarin, Italian, Arabic

Tertiary - Portuguese, Catalan, Greek, Hawaiian, Croatian, Swahili, Hindi, Swedish, Thai

Cool! Fantastic Idea!! Well, I'm not quite sure how many languages I want to learn. At least only 10 come to my mind right now. Let's see, my Language Bucket List (LBL) would be:

  1. German
  2. French
  3. Polish
  4. Japanese
  5. Korean
  6. Mandarin Chinese
  7. Russian
  8. Italian
  9. Portuguese
  10. Hindi
  11. Irish

_Note: French is in bold and in Italics, because I'm focusing more in German.

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/javax

Also, the conlangs. Which I don't consider that they should go in the same list with the real languages, so I'm writing them here. In conclusion, my Conlangs Bucket List (CBL) would be:

  1. Quenya
  2. Sindarin
  3. Klingon
  4. Dothraki
  5. High Valyrian
  6. Vulcan

That's just AMAZING!! You are going to learn the languages in LotR and a Song of Ice and Fire!? Can't help giving my first lingot. Really hoping one day you can speak one, and another, and more of them. That would be the coolest thing!

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/javax

Oh! Thank you so much! :D it would be indeed the coolest thing! I really hope to learn them here, in Duolingo. That would be awesome! And it's so great that you've said: "A song of Ice and Fire", because for many people it's just "game of thrones". So, either you know about the books, or you have read them. And that's cool :D

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Mark.Z

Yeah, I've read the first two books of a Song of Ice and Fire, it's a significant epic! And so is the Lord of the Rings trilogy! I am a fan of it. And you must be a BIG fan of them to learn the languages, I guess? :D

February 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/javax

The first two books? Aww :D, you have to read the third one: "A Storm of Swords", it's unbelievable and beyond epic. And yes, i have read all the five books there are. Waiting for the sixth: "Winds of Winter". And about the LoTR Trilogy, I have seen all the movies, read The Hobbit, The Silmarillion and only the first book of the trilogy. :( But I love it.

February 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Dr.Aca

what's difference between Quenya and Sindarin? i'm just curious, they are both used by Elves and made by Tolkien :D

and i really like Dothraki and High Valyrian, i would like to know them, but i think i will never start learning them because they dont have use in real world. (or i'm wrong? :D )

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/javax

Well, they are both descended by the same root, but Sindarin is what the Elves speak in the Middle Earth and is the more common tongue and even Quenya was forbidden there. Anyway, the ones who speak Quenya are the ones that went to Valinor (The High Elves). But then, the Noldors came back to the Middle Earth and they learned Sindarin but they also teached some Quenya. All the story since its creation is in the book "The Silmarillion", which I read many years ago, so I don't remember very well. But Quenya is the most developed by Tolkien.

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Dr.Aca

i didn't read "The Silmarillion" so i'm not familiar with how it's created. :) Thank you

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/javax

:) I think I should read it again. I wanted to explain a little bit more, but I don't recall too well some names... Oh! And I would love to learn all these conlangs here, in Duolingo. You can use them in the real world if you go to a convention or something, or maybe just for fun, or understand the tv show without subtitles. ;)

February 9, 2014

Well, my father went to Poland for some years. And, when he returned, he came back with a few books in polish, including the The Little Prince. And that's the first time I saw Polish. Then I searched a little about the language and Yap! After some reading, I decided to learn Polish too.

https://www.duolingo.com/espi731

Currently I want to focus on French but later on I'd like to polish up my Arabic and also learn Spanish and German. I have reasons for each one of them. I wonder what are your reasons to learn all of those languages?

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/idshanks

For me, it's simply a love of the sounds and/or structure of the languages. Passion is a good enough reason, is it not? :P

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/idshanks

Mine will inevitably increase over time, and it's already too big! Damn... :P No particular order - italicised languages are ones I am absolutely determined to do to some level, where-as the others are just (strong) desires. The only one I'm actively focusing on at the moment is German, but I dabble in and out of others.

  1. German
  2. Russian
  3. Irish
  4. Scottish Gaelic
  5. Welsh
  6. Icelandic
  7. Norwegian
  8. Swedish
  9. Dutch
  10. Afrikaans
  11. Xhosa
  12. Czech
  13. Polish
  14. Mandarin
  15. Japanese
  16. Finnish
  17. Old English

Finnish is perhaps my favourite sounding language, though I know barely a word of it. I'd also like to try one of the native American languages - something from around central America. I don't know which language in particular (or if that'll expand to multiple), but I love the sounds of those I've heard.

Also, I will probably learn Spanish out of simply having a functional use for it, but I have no particular interest in the Romanic languages.

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Wolhay

Perhaps you could learn Finland Swedish to combine the Swedish language and the melody of Finnish without being impossibly difficult. =p

"När jag blundar" was Finland's contribution to Eurovision 2012 in Finland Swedish: http://youtu.be/43GWoVxRk2Y

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/idshanks

Haha, well maybe I'll learn Finland Swedish instead of Swedish Swedish for that 'melody', but nothing's keeping me away from Finnish! :P Besides, I like a challenge, and I feel pretty confident that the supposed difficulty won't phase me. :)

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/heclgehog

In order of importance/most oftenly practiced:

  1. Irish
  2. Spanish
  3. French

That's as far as I'm focusing right now! Maybe once I have those down I'll pick up a few more that I find interesting.

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/le-lapin-noir

I put the languages I can already speak/read to a decent degree on my profile: Native: English. High: Spanish, Japanese. Middle: Chinese, French. Basic: Portuguese, Korean, Vietnamese.
For now, I'm going to focus on Portuguese via duo, just started the Dutch reverse tree and will re-start German soon. I am definitely doing Russian when the EN to RU tree is available, and I would also like to learn Cantonese, Tagalog and Persian eventually. If something else catches my eye on the way, I might give it a try as well!

February 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/sigmacharding

My language list- not in any particular order, have made a fair start on some and others not so much.

  1. English *(mostly conquered- hopefully learn more about it's past, old and middle and all the bits in-between!)
  2. Irish *(my should be native language, have studied a lot in school but never as a language- always taught more like English and so cannot actively speak it.... Yet)
  3. Spanish *(first foreign language studied by me- also a romance language)
  4. French *(Started learn here on Duolingo in order to speak with foreign exchange students- became addicted and now studying as another language in school)
  5. Lithuanian *(Learning for it's historical/linguistic relevance, also my friend is a native speaker and I find the noun cases keep my brain healthy!)
  6. Italian *(Beautiful language, Italian aunt, love "vivo per lei", "canto della terra" and a few others of botccelli, romance language)
  7. Latin *(In my view the ULTIMATE LANGUAGE!!! Just find it fascinating and would love to be a fluent speaker!)
  8. Portuguese *(romance language- just love em!)
  9. Catalan *(see how similar it is to spanish, think it would be polite to speak to them in their own language, my friend is catalonian and so is one of my aunts)
  10. Russian *(Friends, major language, Best to have at least two Slavic Languages)
  11. Polish (Again lots of polish friends, one polish aunt, make a start on the slavic tree- would like to go to Poland (again))
  12. Romanian *(Few pals, romance language with Slavic influences, how could one resist! Plus I have put into a lot of situations where I have been with a Romanian non-english speaker)
  13. Welsh *(maybe, just to have one other celtic language- I would also love to do Breton)
  14. Greek *(probably both ancient and modern- again my interest in the classics and I love the true alpha-bet!)
  15. German *(Just so I can speak to my brother who, although not a native speaker, does not stop speaking german- Plus making a start on the germanic branch of proto-indo!)
  16. Dutch (second- or third if you count English- germanic language- speak to my dear Computer programming teacher in his native language) 17 India (not quite sure which language yet- here is where I have thus far done the least research. maybe Hindi but not sure yet- looking forward to the journey!)
  17. Mandarin
  18. Japanese Korean arabic, aramaic and Hebrew *(I hope someday to study holy texts)

There are a few others, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself! I think I would be great to study the Indo-European languages as a whole.

February 8, 2014

So far I only know English and French. But I want to learn more

  1. Spanish (learning at the moment on Duo because I really want to travel to South America to such places as the Amazon rainforest. It is also a pretty language that is widely spoken)
  2. Vietnamese (my parents' native language, would be nice to be better able to communicate with them in this language exclusively)

So far, they are the only 2 I really want to learn cause I don,t want to spread myself too thin and I really want to have an advanced level of speaking in both of these, which may take years for me... But just for fun, let's get crazy, so here are others I would like to learn, but we're talking very long-term...

  1. Portuguese
  2. Russian
  3. Japanese
  4. Maybe Mandarin or Arabic

Languages I'm fluent in (in order of fluency)

  1. English (learned it all my life, approx. 10 years now.)
  2. Tagalog (my native language, it's a shame that I speak English more fluently than my native.)
  3. Kapampangan (it's a local language in the Philippines where I grew up.)

Languages I plan to be fluent 1. Spanish (native language, well the vocab not grammar, came from Spanish so this is probably the easiest for me to learn.) 2. French (I always wanted to learn French since I was kid, it just fascinates me.) 3. Russian (I love hearing Russian people speak Russian, I just want to be able to speak the language and be at a conversational level.) 4. Latin (I really don't want to be fluent in this, but I need this to learn Romance languages easier since this is the root of all romance languages. Also, I learn Latin in school. Currently in Latin I.) 5. Swedish/German (I don't know yet lol but I want to be able to speak a Germanic language.)

But, wait. Won't it be so dizzy or confused when you learn multifarious languages at the same time? So I would rather prefer to learn one certain language until I become as fluent as English. 1.

February 9, 2014

I too am planning on "finishing" one language before moving to the next one :-) (by finishing I mean being fluent; you never actually finish learning a language...)

February 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/ekfto456

When you finish one language through Duolingo, then How much do you become fluent on it?

February 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/0liwia

I haven't finished one* so I cannot speak for myself, but from what I have read in the past on the forums, if you finish the English - Target Language tree, provided you did it with sufficient training (not rushing through), your written comprehension skills will be ok (understand quite a lot of materials), your listening skills not so much, and you won't be really fluent as to your ability to actually speak.

But it depends a lot on the things you do outside of Duo; for instance if you watch a lot of movies and speak with natives or friends, you'll be far better than that.

The point is, don't count on Duo alone to make you fluent. It's a good start but clearly not enough to consider you "speak" the language.

edit: *I haven't learned one language just on Duo yet; I have finished a few trees but with previous good knowledge of the language

  15. Irish

I don't want to go too mad, making myself promises that I can't keep, but that's the list so far. German, Maltese and Mandarin Chinese are, I think, my favourite languages (except, of course, for my mothertongue, English). Why do you call it a Language Bucket List?

February 9, 2014

You are learning Welsh?

Where and with what are you doing this?

Do you know any Welsh natives who could contribute to the incubator?

I don't think any if the Welsh natives I know would, but I will try and push them. I just wonder when Duolingo would accept the applications for a language with less than 1 million native speakers.

February 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/StrapsOption

I'm learning Welsh (and Maltese) from a website called Memrise. It is actually not too bad. See my discussion: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1191227

February 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/HerrArbo

Oh, I haven't been on Memrise for a while! I will go on it now. I quite like the BBC's Big Welsh Challenge, but aside from that I have found very little on-line. I found a book though.

How advanced is your Welsh? So far I can only really do is this, with mainly guessed spelling:

"S'mai, QuackSack ydw i. Sut dach y?"

"Iawn, dioch."

"Hwyl Mr Pisgodwn."

But it's a start, I suppose. :)

February 10, 2014

February 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/JamesB84

I believe that the OP calls it a "Language Bucket List" because a "bucket list" is a list of things that one wants to do before they die. The OP is making a bucket list of languages that he wants to learn before he dies.

  1. French

  3. German
  4. ASL (school) (may quit, though, and learn it on the side)

Learning: 1. Japanese 2. German Plan to learn: 3. Spanish 4. Russian

After these I'll have a base in the slavic, romance, and germanic families so it will be easier to expand into other languages if I need to. And I'll know a bunch of kanji if I ever need to learn Chinese.

You are correct! I tend to type some words in my mind ;)

This is fun topic ^^ Ok, I'll post my list, so I can keep it for some years and see how far I got :)

I'm Polish native, fluent in English (but still there's a room for improvement :) )

  1. French
  2. Spanish
  3. Esperanto
  4. Finnish
  5. Vietnamese
  6. Swedish
  7. Czech
  8. Russian
  9. German - learned for many years and gained level B1/B2, but not used recently.

My primary focus is French that I study at the university as well as I use a lot of other resources and doing tandem exchange, but I try to expose to other languages when I have possibility - reading posts of my friends on fb, watching movies from different countries, reading texts on packages or whatever.

I am sure that this list will change, at least I hope so. If it is the same after few years, it will mean that I stopped discovering new things.

OT: Lol, nice IBL (Instrument Bucket List), it's very impressive. I like almost all the instruments, but I don't intend to learn them all. In fact, there is only one I truly love, so much that I can't look to another instrument. And that's the Piano. For me, is the most beautiful instrument there is. I did tried flute, (sweet flute and transverse flute), violin and guitar. But when I meet the Piano, I set with it for life.

February 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/iustitia

Off topic: I dream about playing a keyboard/piano! But I am afraid that if I buy one, I am going to abandon it pretty soon..

February 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/plusran

You can pick up an inexpensive keyboard at most music shops. sell it if you fall out of love with it, upgrade if you don't. I can attest that living without exploring that love is the worst thing ever, I've done it.

February 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/dudly

That's a good idea, I always just tick them off my fingers when I try to focus on where to go with my learning. These are actually clearer goals for me than my general career objectives...! So, here we go.

Speaking:

  1. french , native language, though i really love to learn more about it (origins, etymology, social history, beautiful words -- I study literature and love to write, and all this makes me love my native language even more) note: quebec french, as well as réunion island créole
  2. english
  3. Italian (though I still have a lot to learn, I can read and write and communicate decently in Italian)

Learning:

  1. german/bavarian -- I would say I'm starting to be at a good level
  2. russian -- just began in university

Want to learn:

  1. japanese
  2. korean
  3. thai
  4. czech
  5. ukranian
  6. greek (because oh the food! the food!)

And I expect more will come -- for one, I never planned on learning German or Russian, but they just sort of jumped into my life. I kind of expect I'll learn Spanish someday.

February 10, 2014

I've had this bucket list in the back of my mind since I was 13, and Duo/my university currently offers all of them, so I'm pretty happy right now. I also want to try Romanian and Icelandic (and maybe some other Germanic languages) but not as intensely as the ones on my list.

https://www.duolingo.com/kaylakyogre

Oh, the joys of finding a polyglot community! I am so happy to read all of these posts about people who want to learn so many new languages! I have always said I want to learn at least ten languages in my life. So my language bucket list would be:

1) French (studying now)

2) Spanish (I spent 4 years studying it, but I've not practiced and pretty much lost it)

3) Italian (dabbled in and can understand it)

4) Portuguese

5) Russian

6) Arabic

7) Swahili

8) Chinese

9) Wolof (I want to move to Senegal someday and learn Wolof)

10) English would count as one of them, but you never stop learning!

Dreaming of new languages to learn is my favorite thing to do (besides dreaming of places to travel to). Here's my list: 1. English: Native tongue

  1. Spanish: semi-fluent I really just need more practice (that's where Duolingo comes in)

  2. French: Just started learning it on Duolingo! I almost caved and bought Rosetta Stone, but I think this will work out better. I hope to be a foreign correspondent and I figured French would be the next most useful/universally spoken language to learn.

  3. Hebrew: this is a beautiful dream…someday

  4. German

  5. Russian

  6. Irish Gaelic

  7. Arabic

Has anyone else found that the hardest thing about learning a third language when you are fluent in two is applying the accent of your second language to the one you are learning? I have a strong Mexican accent in my Spanish, and I have the hardest time pronouncing my French words because of it. They end up sounding Spanish! Anyone else have this problem? How do you combat it?

February 13, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/mahsazet

I had, and still have, the same problem with my English accent when I try to speak Spanish (you know, pronouncing o as â, for example). I fight it off by listening to a lot of 'español hablante". I guess that is a possible cure: listening, listening ....... and more listening to the spoken language! Watching Spanish movies and listening to Spanish radio stations has proved to be efficient in my case, they have helped me to better my pronunciation to some extent. So I plant to continue listening to more spoken Spanish in order to get rid of the accent for good. Suggest you try it too, at least for a while to see if it's effective or not.
Good luck!

To do italics, you put one asterix () and either side of whatever you want to italicise. To make something bold, you do the same, but with two asterixis (*) on either side.

Yeah, mine took three years. It started as like every word backwords, then I got bored, so I notched it up a little bit and complexed grammar, gave some words some germanic roots, made awesome dipthongs, and my favorite is the conjugated pronouns! Sort of like I'm, except there are fourteen forms for about 12 different pronouns. So, "I am here when I do, when I can, when I will, when I have" would be Mi äre neu i, neu ki, neu li, neu vi

As a result, I'm becoming very interested in learning other languages in the future (I have to stop myself from learning stuff in other languages simultaneously because I'm afraid it'll confuse me with Spanish lol...). I'm not exacly sure about all the other languages I want to learn, but some possibilities are: -Italian -Russian -Esperanto -Portuguese -French -Chinese -Ukrainian
