Am I the only one who suddendly wants to learn random languages at night?
Like, right now I'm learning Arabic when I should be sleeping...
I think this is more common than it seems, so I'm asking the community to see if I'm not the only one... At least it's something productive, and who knows, may get us interested in studying that language seriously...
All the time. Sometimes I'll just add a bunch of languages before deleting them because they're either too hard or I realize that I'll just never use it.
BTW what are you using to learn Arabic? I've been interested in learning it recently and already learned the writing system.
Although I haven't gotten all the way through it, this struck me as yielding much more benefit per unit time than YouTube videos (which I also watched). I think past a certain point it costs $5, but if time has any value it seems worth it. Or you can see its method and then continue with it for the last 2/3 or so of the alphabet if you're really tight for financial resources.
I have this one memory in particular.
I'm lying in bed, not tired, remembering a meme (specifically about choice of foreign language) that I had seen earlier in the day. I remember Latin was: you value academia very highly but you value crude jokes more. Followed by Ancient Greek: like Latin, but also you hate yourself. And I think to myself. "Hey. I hate myself." And I rolled over to reach for my phone.
And that's the night I started learning Ancient Greek.
