Let's learn a language.

Postby Eulogic on Sun Jan 10, 2010 11:16 am

It's the language learning thread!

Everyone choose one or two languages, then learn them! Discuss your methods, setbacks, breakthroughs, tips, and other related crap here.

I have taken reading courses in German and a great deal of Latin and Ancient Greek. I am choosing to learn Italian and German, which are two of the most important modern languages in the field of classics. I will probably focus on Italian first, then move on to German. I am aiming for fluency, so I imagine that vocabulary will be my biggest stepping stone.

I realize that this is a pipe dream. Hopeless optimism is recommended.

We couldn't write novels in our own languages. Now we're supposed to learn an entire new language? And write a novel in it probably? There is a word for your proposition, sir, and that word is 'madness.'

But hey, I'm with you on learning German. I only took three years of it in high school and a year in college. I should be able to ask where the bathroom is in German at least.

wo ist die toilette

the point isn't to learn useless tourist language though, because you can get by in another country without speaking a lick of the native language

the point is fluency!
