Which non Indo-European language do you think that is the most interesting one? I find Chinese and Japanese very interesting because of the culture of both countries, but I have never gone beyond this. So what can you tell us about your non Indo-European languages learning' journey?

Khoi-San languages are also interesting in that you have to go to Namibia to learn it.

And I don't know much about their grammar, but I think it must be interesting too.

Look on Hebrew,

It is a very simple language with mostly no exceptions and amazing grammar structure.

Hi, Estefania. That's a very interesting question. I also think that Chinese, Japanese and Arabic are very prestigious languages from old and rich cultures. I'd love to speak a little of them. If I coud choose only one of them, I'd probably choose Japanese because I've always dreamed beeing a samurai :)

However, I'd like to mention here a language of a very small region in the north of Spain. I'm refering to Euskera. I find very interesting that this people kept their non Indo-European language althought they were surrounded by big and powerful european countries.

Spain should be proud of having this region and language in its country.

Greetings from Spain!

What about Arabic? The Arabic culture is one of the richest cultures in the world.

I am a little confused because it's non-Indo European languages in the title but Asian languages in the post. In my occasion, I am Chinese. As I am from the north, my mother tongue is Mandarin. I've been learning Japanese intermittently for about.....ten years? At different stage of my life, I attempted to teach myself Uyghur, Chahar Mongolian and Korean (All the other languages that I've learnt are Indo European languages.) In my opinion, they are all very interesting, each in its own way. (Each of them belongs to a different language family from the others.)

I currently don't have any plan to expand my language repertoire. But if I had more time, I probably take a look at Finnish or Estonian. My university offers several classes on Estonian, which is rather unusual compared to other universities.
