  5. Why are you learning the lang…


Why are you learning the languages you're learning?

No other discussion has asked this before. So I will start with why I am learning these languages:

All 4 apply. Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, and Portuguese are all connected (even if one of them isn't quite like the others xD) because my family is saving up for a very big trip in the summer of 2018, we are going to Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Portugal, and so I want to be the interpreter of my parents :)

And you? Why did you choose to learn the languages you are learning?

Hate to break it to you, but there's at least one of these a week.


Occasionally even more than that. Sometimes they get downvoted into oblivion because of the overwhelming amount of them. I like them all the same.


One of these a day* friend


because languages are fascinating and life is too short to not know at least some basic things in many, as well as for travel and culture aspects


To be honest, I have not much of a life and learning languages helps fill the void.


i am learning Spanish for a trip to Cuba or Mexico


Good luck, we love foreigners here in México, I think you will have a good time.

You will find more motivating reasons than you can ever hope to read or absorb. I'm learning Korean because that is my wife's native language.
