Just start somewhere in the middle and pick up the others later. In the end they are all dialects of the same language, so by the time you master one of them, you probably already have a pretty good understanding of the others.

I already have about two lifetimes worth of must-have languages (the ones in my profile), so adding any more without a really good reason is out of the question. I do allow myself to play with wanderlust languages for 15 minutes here or there though, and that mostly satisfies the crave.

I always mispronounce and make dumb mistakes in both languages.

The ones I put there are pretty much a list of typical wanderlusts for me although they can change with time.

Goddamn Langfocus, now I'm wanderlusting for Persian. Fortunately, I have no real interest in (because I have very little knowledge of) the associated culture, it's more of a raw, carnal, animal lust for the delicious grammar and phonology of the language. It will pass.
