Which language are you currently learning?

You might have been learning a new language for a few weeks, or for a few years... Are you studying several times a week or is it in standby? What's your motivation? Please share your experience with us :)

  • I'm currently learning Japanese again.

    I had done 5 months about 8 years ago at Uni, and I've decided to start over and learn it properly. I'm planning to go to Japan for my honeymoon and I would love to be able to talk with people, read menus etc... I started two weeks ago and am halfway through the first alphabet; I'm going slowly but it's working! After all I have 2 years to get to an intermediate level.

    At the moment I'm studying at least every two days :)

    French, but then again I've been learning it for 15 years now.

      If you want to chat in French let me know ;) Je peux créer une tribe pour ça.

        Let me clear that up. I've been constantly learning AND forgetting for 15 years. I know like 100 words, if that.

          The offer still stands :)

              Haha I'm sure you know more than that! I'm thinking of creating a new tribe for people to practice their languages, will do that after I've watched Game of Thrones though. I'll advertise it later around :)

              That's a pretty good idea. I think we should also create tribes for people who speak other languages to use. Something like /t/espanolnoticias or /t/francaisnouvelles. This is something I've always thought reddit lacks. While there are a few foreign language native subreddits and a way to change the language of the website, the overall subreddit network for non-english speakers is just not there.

    Re-learning latin to get ahead in my university studies. After I'm done with that, I'm considering trying either Japanese or Arabic, since I haven't really dabbled with Eastern languages as of yet.

    • Cheesemangeur

      Arabic would be an amazing language to learn, but I can't get around to the sounds and pronunciation of it. Japanese is a lot easier to me in that regard.

    Swedish. I don't know why but I am.

      Have you ever been there, or is it just your background?

    Spanish through school, german and esperanto on my own time.

    • Cheesemangeur

      I think you're the first person I meet who's learning esperanto! Are you having fun with it? I've learnt German through school, and last did some basic Spanish learning.

        I'm in the beginning of my studies, but ya, I'm enjoying it. There are a few annoying features, but overall, it makes a lot of sense and is incredibly easy to learn.

    French pour moi aussi :) Been learning more or less for five years now, not for any particular reason

    • Cheesemangeur

      What would you say your level is in French?

      • PeachesFromHeck
        +3

        B1 maybe? I can read French news easily but a classic novel would be a struggle. I can understand 75% of a typical episode of Les Grosses Tetes but I feel like my speaking ability is about the same as a 5 year-old's.

        • Cheesemangeur
          +2

          Understanding Les Grosses Tetes is pretty impressive actually. Speaking is always the last part of learning in any case.

            I listen to it religiously so I've found it's a matter of getting used to accents and speed more so that vocabulary or grammar. The closest I've come to a real conversation was apologizing to a Belgian for my French but he said I was fine. Who knows if he was just being nice though haha!
