Learning a new language is a personal challenge.
You may NEED to learn it (professional requirement, moving to a French speaking country, living with a french speaking person etc...) or you just want to learn it for your own PLEASURE/EDUCATION/CURIOSITY/INTEREST..without any particular pressure.
In any case it is fine and hopefully FUN :-)
But how motivated are you to proceed...to improve, to make real efforts, work on your own, get involved in a conversation ?
Yes learning a language is a personal challenge.
Each language I chose to learn has a meaning to me and also shape my personality and French couldn't be forgotten on my list.
French was supposed to be the second language I wanted to learn, but now is my 5th. It's ok =P
I love the French style, the way you guys pronounce the words which is not easy, I studied a little about it and that made me clap my hands for seeing how powerful our brain is for being able to handle a language like french.
I will start learning French next year and I can't wait to be able to understand it immediately.
French is classic!!!!
