Learning a Language: Where to Start?

Starting a new task, such as learning a language without a goal can easily leave you asking yourself, "Now what?" While Duolingo is a great resource to get you started, it's important to set goals in order to focus on improving your skills. Socratica, a YouTuber created a useful video where she breaks down how to learn a foreign language: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6Y-vE15l0Y Here, she discusses some of the main goals she has found useful in her studies. Hope this helps, and good luck!

Granda (in top100). Unfortunately Dankon was not in the top 100, but Germanio/Italio/Hungario and obviously Esperanto were.

FYI only:

The girl creating this course is actually a Spanish-Ecuador-Brazilian actress, Liliana Castro.

She must have a very broad interest and talents, as she also lectures on YouTube in e.g. mathematical group theory, which is certainly not for everybody:
