    I am starting to try and learn German (third time lucky yes?) again. I'd love to be able to speak it well, it's such an interesting (and a pain in the ass grammar-wise) language.

    I would like to learn Spanish or Chinese, perhaps in the future though.

    Did French A level, tried to learn Polish at work but mainly got simple orders and swearing, just done modules in Italian and mandarin at uni and am trying to very slowly pick up some Greek from Greek friends. Love languages

    I am learning spanish personally, and ive found something that works for me.

    I use euronews website, they have very short video articles in most main languages and like a transcript underneath. Cannot reccomend it highly enough!

    And then I use this thing called Learning with texts (from fluent in 3 months website) where you paste in texts and highlight what words you know and dont know.... Its pretty cool and helps me see how much of
    Articles i know

    I also find speaking is really good but hard logistically speaking

    What methods work for you guys?

    Nope. Despite living and working in France for a few months at a time; I've never managed to pick up more than a few words. Memory just isnt good enough to remember new languages!

    Yes, I learned German to near fluency. Next I want to learn Spanish or Russian. I think it gets a lot easier after mastering one

    I'm an eighteen Italian guy and at the moment I speak fluently English German and French. Actually, my aim is learning other three languages (Russian, Portuguese and Arabic). I believe that languages allows u to glimpse what for the others is hidden. That's like living an other life for each language u learn

    My first language is English, and I am pretty fluent in BSL. I know a lot of French, but am still improving my knowledge of it, and I am learning Russian and German currently. I hope to try Hindi and Arabic after, too.

    I've recently become addicted to K-pop and I almost want to learn Korean just to understand what they're singing about their alphabet doesn't seem too difficult to learn and can already read some of the symbols. I'd also quite like to learn German

    Japanese. I have wanted to do so since I was about 10, but there always seemed to be something in the way. I've been learning it for about a month and I am really enjoying it so far.

    I know French and English fluently, did Russian for gcse but the school didn't offer it at a-level so i guess i'll just have to pick it up later on, and i'm doing a 4 month course in Japanese which is so much fun. I'd like to be able to speak Russian fluently.
