Every day Arabic class reminds me of how much I truly want to learn Spanish.
Reblogged this on Commonplace Book.
Interesting. Strange that Russian is in Medium – I don’t speak it but everyone seems to have a pretty hard time with it!
You won’t hear me argue against learning Spanish…. It’s a good bang for your time-buck, and certainly important if you’re interested in working with marginalized populations. The more economically/financially inclined (you know who you are) might also argue its advantages in working with emerging markets.
And, lest I sound too utilitarian, it’s also the language of Cervantes and Neruda, Allende and Vargas Llosa, Borges and Unamuno… worth studying just so you can read their stuff!
Romanian is easy and Hebrew is medium? Maybe for Joe and Silvia and you: I’ve managed to achieve poor (but fun!) French in only 46 years!😌🍤🍟
Ditto for Neruda!
