Does Anyone Ever get a bit Embarrassed about their Hobby of Learning Languages?
So earlier today, I was talking with my friends and they were asking what I actually do when I'm at home (because I don't like to play on my Xbox or watch gaming videos on YouTube) and then one of my friends said "Do you just go on Duolingo 24/7?" He didn't mean it offensively but the thing is I do admittedly spend 1-2 hours per day (sometimes even more) working on my Spanish xD
Don't get me wrong, I love learning other languages and would never in a million years stop just because of something someone else has said. But still, it's not something I'd freely admit because, for some reason, people tend to laugh at what people do as long as they're not on their Xbox all day or keeping up to date with YouTube drama.
So I'm just wondering, does anyone else get slightly embarrassed admitting that they enjoy learning languages? (And I mean people who spend 1+ hours per day - I wouldn't count it is a true hobby/passion if you just spend 5 minutes per day learning a language)
