I started with Spanish because a lot of people speak the language.

And then Russian because I feel that we are not getting the true story about Russia. I have been reading newspapers, watching movies, am enjoying a mini series called the swallow's nest which is in Russian buy has english subtitles, and I have grown to love the country and culture.

Portuguese because it is the language of Jiu Jitsu!

Others just because it has become a personal joy.

I'm learning French, and thinking about starting Esperanto.

I've always wanted to learn French. When I was 10, I had my parents buy me a French for Dummies book (which, come to think of it, I should probably find...) but it was too dense and hard to understand at the time. Duolingo has made learning very easy for me, I wish I'd had something similar when I was young.

As for Esperanto, it's attractive because there's no irregular forms of words. People who've learned Esperanto have said it makes learning a different language easier because it introduces you to the mechanics of language in an extremely pure form (i.e. no odd forms of conjugation or special rules).

I'm learning four languages: French, Norwegian, Italian, and Swahili.
French, because it's a useful language to know in Canada -
Norwegian and Italian because of my family background,
And Swahili because I hope to help poorer countries (Swahili is spoken in Kenya, the sixth poorest country in Africa), and Swahili is spoken in many African countries.

thanks ; ) It's a really cool language. I like to say it's like a jigsaw puzzle - but when you fit a piece of grammar in place, it's really satisfying <3 <3

I'm learning German because I used to live in Germany, but I forgot the language and this really bothers me. I also want to move back there.

I'm learning Russian because I like Russia and have always wanted to speak Russian and visit and stuff.

I'm not really working that hard on anything else right now.

It all started with Finnish, but I then quickly obtained an obsession for ALL the Nordic languages. Now I must learn not only Finnish, but also Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Icelandic, and Faroese. They have such beautiful melodic sounds with their soothing intonation and ear-pleasing phonology. It's a shame that the Nordic languages aren't all that useful outside their native countries.

German, being the most widely spoken germanic language ( aside from English ). It had to go on my list of languages to learn. Maybe I might try out Dutch and Frisian later.

Slavic languages were also appealing, but considering how hard it is to learn Russian, I don't think I'll be attempting any other slavic languages soon. I'll have to get a good grasp of Russian first.

French because I need a romance language in my arsenal ( not to mention how widely it's spoken ).

Japanese, I think Japan itself is enough to explain why I'm learning this language.

Chinese, I like its bouncy sound, it's also the language with the most speakers on this planet.

I'm learning Spanish
like quite a few people on Duo are,
It's required in my school. I guess I'm sorta fond of now, considering i haven't deleted it because i'm not taking Spanish anymore.

I'm learning Vietnamese because of no real reason.
I was getting bored of Spanish one day, and decided to dabble in a few languages to see which ones i liked. I clicked on Vietnamese and i fell in love :) It's a hidden gem of Duolingo ^^
I definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about trying it!

I just recently decided to pick up Mandarin.
I love seeing the Hànzì, i like the sound of it, and i really like the music that I've come across.
Admittedly, it's mainly Lu Han. I used to want to learn Japanese, (I still do, it's just not as much of a priority as it used to be), but i realized that Mandarin was the one that i actually wanted to learn.
Now that I've been learning Vietnamese, and only recently managed to grasp the tones, Mandarin seems so much more approachable now. :)

Why are you learning Portuguese?

I am learning Portuguese because my cousins, aunt, and uncle just recently moved over there. I miss them a lot and I want to be able to talk with them and visit them.
