A conlanger / language learner I know who has been learning Swahili on and off for a few years now is successfully convincing me to get on the same train.

I'm also back to learning some Yucatec Maya.

Weird coincidence - I came here to say I was wanderlusting Swahili after listening to a linguistics podcast about it.
Currently away from Unilang.

I thought you were learning Adyghe? Or was it Kabardian?

I learnt Adyghe last year. Then I stopped learning it, and now I have a wanderlust... maybe I'll start learning.

You mean you're still trying to do your other languages? You might as well give up and make the study group languages your TAC languages. :P

I am wanderlusting for Chechen. 8-)

I read the topic about it on a Russian forum for language enthusiasts, and listened to a few songs in it.

Because if I create a Chechen study group, you won't be able to resist the temptation? Every Unilanger seems to have a fun language, why can't I have one? :P

Go for it! With your level of German it shouldn't be too hard to just jump into reading and listening, right?

I find that I don't know enough about Gaelic languages to know if I'd prefer Scottish Gaelic or Ulster Irish or Connacht Irish or Munster Irish or something like Early Modern Irish or...
