It seems to me as I travel down the road to multilingualism, that it only makes sense to learn languages in groups.
Take Japanese for example. I am having such a struggle to make it my own. Once I get to fluency in Japanese, why waste all the effort I put into learning it by just learning Japanese? I hear Korean is very close in structure and tonality. I fully plan to tackle Korean once I feel at home with Japanese.
Same thing with the Romance languages. I speak Spanish already and Spanish feels like a second skin to me. Why waste this proficiency with Spanish? No way! I am learning Italian, Portuguese, French, and Romanian as well.
Egyptian Arabic? Again, once I feel I can construct sentences at will and with ease, I am learning Modern Standard Arabic and after that, I plan on learning Farsi and Hebrew. Maybe, after that, I will attempt another colloquial Arabic language; Moroccan perhaps.
It’s amazing that I am considering learning all these languages when a year ago I believed it was impossible to learn one more besides English and Spanish.
Thank you for looking!
