    nooo dont be sorry xD this is the reason why i decided to post this on TSR!!! I adapted well!! Took me a while to learn European culture though !! A never seen / met a black / gay person, and coming from a traditional russian family, it has taken a lot of arguments to teach my parents no to be homophobic/ racist xD I was 9 when i moved out of russian, 13 when I moved out of belgium
    what about you??????
    I was only 3 when i moved to spain and then 13 when i moved to england so it was quite a painfull experience but i adapted quickly, now im in my second year of sixth form

    So I actually have a bet on with my friend that I can learn 2 different languages before I finish uni so if I do a masters at uni it'll be 5 years. So become fluent in Spanish and German within 5 years, I think I can do it. Anyone else agree that's this is possible ?

    I think you can definitely do it! they are similar languages, but not too similar where you would get the two confused. There are so many methods of teaching your self a language quickly and proactively. One of the best tips I can give you is either travel to the country and absorb your self in their lifestyles or find a friend whom you can skype and have shits and giggles with, in that language

    well done ! I heard that Mandarin is really hard, haven't even looked into Cantonese xD what are your plans for the future ? Do you think that knowing the languages has opened up a lot of doors for you?
