2012 and Languages

Happy New Year!  One of my resolutions is to post to this blog every day.  Yep, you heard right.  Having only added two posts last year, and just as few the year before, I want to bring this blog back to life, because I do feel more motivated when I write here.  I'm cutting it close today though, seeing as it's less than an hour until tomorrow.

My mom has recently talked about getting out her German and Spanish.  I keep telling her she'll make a lot of progress if she studies a little every day, and finds ways to keep it in her memory.  That's easier to do with some languages than others.

As for me, I've been sticking with the same nine languages...
-Spanish
-Portuguese
-Dutch
-Romanian
-Serbian
-Polish
-Norwegian
-Bulgarian
-Lithuanian
(in that order)

I realize that's a lot, but I know there are people who attempt more, so I don't feel too silly, though I do sometimes question the point in learning so many.  There's that saying, "Jack (or Jill) of all trades and master of none."  Even if I advance further in some languages than others, I still enjoy learning, and there's no harm in that.  :)

  1. Good for you! I'm not doing too well at posting in my own blogs these days, and I definitely do not know 9 languages! I admire the fact that you do. :) I'm proud of your accomplishment with that. That's awesome! You'll have to start teaching language to non-english speaking people. That could be a career for you! ;)

  2. I'm still up (as usual.) I do think it would be cool to teach English to non-native speakers. :)
