Learning languages

Hey all, internet is back up and I have some more EXCITING info. I have been learning French for the past month or so but I have dropped it in order to learn german and french, as they have much more practicality for my future and do not collide with each other. French made it too confusing. Anyways, Mon-Thur I do 3 hours of German, then spanish the next day, then german etc... I use Michel Thomas and Pimsleurs and so in a couple months I will be pretty fluent in the language using the ACTIVE vocabulary. Once I do that I will expand my vocabulary on my own and begin reading each night, each on their respective language days. Hopefully I can master the language by the time I join the military, that would be excellent. I took spanish for two years and it is very phonetic, as well as speaking it and reading it comes very easy to me for some reason. Anyways, hopefully this turns out well.

  2. I suck at learning languages, fair enough I've never really tried, but it seems so hard in my head, but I have learned HTML, C# etc easily, so maybe I should try a speaking language.

  10. I found German to be harder then French, but that's probably after taking 4 years of it, and only one semester of college German.
