Might switch; What do you guys think?

I started learning Korean a bit back; At the time i thought it was pretty cool. But as time wore on, I began losing interest, and Korean started losing that little zing that made me pick it up in the first place. Im not too far in, and have a full page of notes. Should I go ahead and switch to something that peaks my interest more, or should I keep with it and see if i begin to like it more as I learn more? Thanks!

I think if you switch to a language that interests you, you'll never be able to stick with something. A big part of learning a language, or learning anything really, is sticking with it even when it does get a bit dull. When the next language gets a bit boring, you tend to switch again and again and again never really picking much up. You tend to get that rush back when you can translate your first word, or you can read a sentence. Even if you just recognise a word you're hearing, it can give you the boost you need to continue your learning. If you're learning solely through Duolingo, can I suggest you try Memrise and similar apps to help you with learning? Learning a language is a commitment, and if you can't see Korean in your future, I think that would be the point where I would consider learning another language instead.

Motivation is very important when learning a language. If you're going to switch languages, here's my two cents on which one to switch to: https://travels.fredrikvladimircoulter.com/2019/01/28/what-language-should-you-take-my-two-cents/

what are you asking for? if your disinterested in it your not going to be able to do it anyways, and theres nothing any of us can say that will suddenly convince you to throw a few dozen thousand hours at it, either.

seems like a pretty dick move not to say "dont give up" in a response, but eh. theres no provocative like thought provocative.
