What's YOUR Maybe-Later Language List?
"Huh?", you might ask, drowning in a sea of confusion...
I'll explain. ;)
We all have our own "language bucket lists" https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9873909
They're all so diverse. They come in all shapes and sizes from big to small, from languages of the same type to any types at all, from languages spoken in just one area to any area anywhere at all, and even just one language to an infinite, never ending list, always allowing more to crawl their way in.
We are all so different and each one of us can identify with at least one of these types...
...but what if you're not the type that just lets as many languages as they want onto their language bucket list? What if you have more you might like to learn, might not, but by some miracle you finish all the languages on your language bucket list rather earlier than expected and you're in different levels of fluency in all those languages? Like, these languages aren't really all that interesting to you (anymore) but it wouldn't bother you to learn them at all if you finish your original plan rather early...

Here's my maybe-later language list:
That little spark of "just maybe if the chance were there, but I wouldn't care if I didn't get to learn these after all."
What's on your maybe list?? :)
Võro, Russian, Lithuanian, (Northern?) Sami, Greenlandic, Norwegian/Swedish, Japanese, Mongolian, Azeri, Kazakh, Uyghur.
My actual language bucket list already has 8 languages on it, so unfortunately I doubt I'll ever get to any of these. :(
And hey, I definitely recommend Turkish. O çok ilginç, ve bence türkçe dünyadaki en güzel dil!
(1) Reverse English for Spanish tree
My plan is to become fluent in Spanish first, and then finish my French tree (I stopped French because I wanted to give more attention to Spanish), start and finish the Portuguese tree after my French, and the Italian one after Portuguese, and so on. If a Latin tree ever comes out, I'm totally doing it. The Italian, Vietnamese, Esperanto, Norwegian, and German trees are only if I finish the Spanish, Portuguese, Reverse. and French trees.
So, Woof has something to do with your name, is that why you had to have it.? And speaking of weird, what do you make of that number of people that wanted (did) to use it. Personally (I know you didn't ask) I don't think, in this case, dots are good. It's too easy to mistake you for someone else.
But on the other hand, this isn't exactly "e-mail'.
Actually, no. I am not exactly sure myself why I changed it to Woof....., but I just did. As for the number of people who wanted to use ''Woof.'' I have not seen them, so they are probably in another country, or no longer active. And what exactly do you mean by ''This isn't exactly 'e-mail.' ''?
For some reason there was no reply button on your last response. The fact that I look at it on my phone might have caused that. Anyway, about that "e-mail" remark, I was thinking about the dots and it kind of brought e-mail to mind and the fact that you have to be so careful about THAT address. Whereas in Duo it's not quite that serious. IMHO
I've heard and seen Icelandic written and it truly simply is beautiful!...
In fact, I almost started learning it once three years ago, but then I stopped. XD Since I wouldn't speak it with many people. And the other languages that are on my lists I find more interesting.
But I wish you luck on all your languages!! :D And hopefully you could get to learn at least some Icelandic!!!!!!
these are mine.
I am Asian, so some Asian languages are not on my list. Even though some Asian languages have special characters, I still think they are easy to learn. :)
Language bucket list: Spanish, French, German, Norwegian, Slovak.
Extras: Romanian, Frisian, Albanian, Armenian, Lithuanian, Romansh, Uzbek, Kurdish and Old Church Slavonic. Perhaps Macedonian or Bulgarian, probably not. Also maybe some language of Middle East or India also probably not. Organized in order of likelihood. I'd at least like to see what these look like, in any case.
I have quite a few:
I have a good reason to seriously learn all of these but I also have a reason to wait until I'm more comfortable in my other languages. Other languages I'm either really unsure about or I don't really need to learn but I have the idea it'll be fun.
My native language is English. I decided to start learning languages because I want to be an anthropologist. (An anthropologist is someone who studies human culture). Eventually I want to get an anthropology degree with Latin American and Middle Eastern minors from a university, and I want to move to Sweden before I retire. I also have a travel bucket list and I want to learn languages related to my ancestry.
Vabbè! Ma ora che ci penso, non abbiamo nessun posto per parlarci in italiano.. perché hanno cancellato i nostri canali d'attività. Quindi, non possiamo parlare con gli altri sui loro profili mai più... :/
E qui nelle discussioni non si può parlare, ovviamente. Mi dispiace tanto!.. :,( Sono triste.
Ho un'amica italiana che non sa parlare molto l'italiano. Sa soltanto il suo dialetto. :(
Comunque, piacere di conoscerti e continui avanti imparando le lingue che vuoi!!! :D Ce la farai!
I can already speak Fluence English, Dutch & Hungarian. The problem is that I go to school in The Netherlands and sometimes I visit my family in Hungary, so I never learned writing Hungarian xD I think Duolingo can help me with that, also my bucket list:
This is a challenging topic, because I have a clear idea of the languages I'd like to learn, but prioritizing them is more of a challenge. For instance, there are a few languages I've started here, because they're available from Duolingo, but that wouldn't necessarily have been among my top choices:
Dutch Norwegian Swedish Hebrew Turkish
But there are others that are harder to acquire, because there are fewer resources available, that I'd like to learn even though they might not be as useful to me:
Greenlandic Tok Pisin Mongolian Lithuanian Basque Romani
I guess that last list would constitute my "maybe" or "if I have time" list, but, all things being equal, I might have chosen one of those over a language I'm now studying. Maybe.
-Yiddish (maybe, lower chance)
Yeah, quite a few. It's mainly because I don't want to be doing too many at once because it is more difficult to focus on a particular language a lot, and also because a few I've tried and found them fairly difficult or I just wasn't too interested while I was learning. A lot of these are more 'these would be cool to learn' rather than 'I'm going to learn these', I don't want to be doing too many at once.
Lovely list of diverse languages!!!
Hopefully you get to learn at least one or two!! I suggest Greek, since it's very lovely to listen to, and even their music! And they have a beautiful alphabet! It's so lovely! X)
But many people do speak Chinese and Arabic.
Have fun!!!! I wish you the best on your language learning experience!!! :D
I guess I'd say Malagasy, Greenlandic, Kazakh, Tok Pisin, Mongolian.
I feel like overall my bucket list hasn't actually caught up to how easy it is to get started in new languages thanks to Duolingo and other newer tools. I've already wound up with significant knowledge of languages that I'd never even given much thought to!
I've already learned Russian, which was my original goal. I'll probably spend some more time polishing it (have a vocab around ~17k now which is enough to do anything really, but I want to be 100% bilingual)
but I had so much fun learning Russian I've begun studying Mandarin Chinese in my free time. I doubt I'll ever focus on it with as much passion as I did Russian, having memorized only a few dozen symbols thus far, but maybe one day :)
