Should I learn Turkish?
I think I should, because my dad's side of the family is Turkish, and it seems to be the second most high language in people learning it on duolingo. (English first), but should I?
It's not as popular as you say, you can see on the course page how they're ranked. But popularity shouldn't be a determiner! I say if you're interested in it, go for it! I'm learning a little at the moment and it's a very interesting language, and if there are family reasons, I'd say that's a good reason (I have similar reasons for the languages I'm focusing more on)! Good luck if you decide to go ahead with it, and with your French too!
I know, but even we native Turkey Turkish speakers only can understand Azeri, Turkmen or maybe Uzbek Turkishes, we cannot understand Gagavuz,Kyrgyz, Kazakh, Uighur etc. We even cannot understand some words in Azeri or Turkmen. Also it is not something like I am western minded.
