German: when I was 15 years old, I used to listen to Lacrimosa and I read "The sorrows of young Werther" and "The Robbers". I always had the best grades in Portuguese and wanted to try something harder.
Italian: I went to a language school to learn German and it gave a discount for students that wanted to learn another language. They had French, English, Italian, Spanish and German courses. I chose Italian just because I didn't like French/English and I had Spanish classes at regular school. Unfortunately, I stopped learning Italian and German at the age of 17.
Japanese: my grandparents came from Japan and it's a way to understand their culture and thoughts.
English: I took English classes earlier, but I didn't learn so much. Now I'm 24 and I've been living in Germany since July/2017. I returned studying German, Japanese and Italian and now I've been learning English to increase my chances of getting a job.
How about you, Rose?
* Nowadays I am totally in love with German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and French. Having a good English teacher and being able to understand what people write on Italki, I am also enjoying learning English.
Thank you for these aswers.
Now I am focused on improving the learning English and Italian. Why these languages? English because it is an international language. In turn the Italian, because I like how is sound this language (especially the song).
