What people around you think about you learning other languages? I don't know if I wrote it right.

Don't worry you wrote it almost perfectly :] It should be; "What do people around you think about you learning other languages? What you wrote Charly, would be more formal and not needed in a daily dialogue. As for me I am learning mainly Japanese and there are close to zero people where I live that are doing that. I get mostly "Wow that is really cool", or "That sounds pretty difficult"- or similar responses. So mostly good thoughts about it. Of course there are those who say that I shouldn't bother for some odd reason, and those who believe I should learn Chinese instead, as job-wise it would be very smart. But positive responses overall :>

It's funny how some people treat it like a superhuman power. I think anyone can manage a second language! The other thing is that people start to look to you for the "secret meaning" if they don't understand. For example, if you knew some Japanese and on TV there was a quote in Japanese, then you can expect almost everyone near you to look at you for an interpretation. PS. Ana, your sentence was just fine. I wouldn't change it. :)
