Hi!!
Well, maybe you should think about which language is more necessary to you, to your job or just to find one! Spanish language covers all the latin america (excl brazil) plus spain, chinese could be necessary if you think you'll go to china and russian the same for russia...so I think it depends on which are your needs!! I can speak english, french, spanish, german and croatian which is the language i love the most cause I want to find a job in the former jugoslavia!

All the languages are so beautiful!! I would learn them all if I could have so much time!! wink

Chinese is hard!! I tried once but then I gave up cause you always need to practice it and if you don't live there in china you cannot!! Try with spanish!! Easier and very melodic!! wink

Whatever you choose, I suggest you travel to the country using the language first, if you possible.
then, you can have stronger motivation to learn.
plus, the best way to learn a language is, as you know, to learn in the country using the one.

In my case, I've ever lived in Cambodia for two years. Now I can speak in Cambodia language to some degree.

HI! Daliya. You live in Egypt. Do you speak Arabic? Is Arabic a main language? A friend of mine speaks 16 languages as he was a language professor at a U.S. University and he is studying Arabic. He is originally from Sweden. I hear that Urdu is commonly used language. Spanish would probably be a great general choice too if you are trying to just expand your horizon.

I agree with Robert! Spanish would be a good choice! And it's not that difficult to learn! wink

I think you should study arabic. Arabic is a very challenging language to learn.

Hey, everyone! I'm Gizem from Turkey! I know almost 4 languages. Turkish(my mother tongue), English, German and Spanish(I've been learning it for 3 months). I really wanna learn more languages because learning new languages is too important for getting to know new cultures and making new friends from around the world. Think about it! Imagine! Suppose to you know all the languages spoken around the world! Aww! It would be super awesome! * Try to read books in different languages that you want to learn. Use glossary all the time! Travel abroad as much as possible! *Make new friends from all over the world!

Hi everyone, I speak about 3 languages quiet fluently and a very basic French. I've always felt for the language and have always wanted to learn how to speak it fluently as well as understanding it. Both my parents are fluent speakers except me. I went to an English speaking school which is why I ended up being an English speaker.

I believe there's always never ending to learning and hope to give this a few more try in the near future.

When I can speak and understands a fare-bit of it, I am sooo going to France :-)

Dear Daliya,
Thank you for the nice thread. The title of the thread is very realistic in all ages all time.
Indeed, learning a new language is not an easy task. There are many factors related to language learning. For example, age works as a great factor in learning language. We cannot change it but we can make or use some aspect to learn a language.
However, the best practice of learning a language is its daily use and practices.

Thanks!
