When you think "Okay, I'm going to learn German tonight", open your Gothic book, and convince yourself it's sort of like German.

I'm surprised none of them have said anything yet.When the local librarians ask you how you learn so many languages and you feel awkward.
Check out yes. Purchase no. (That's what pirating's for.)When all the books you check out or purchase have to do with languages.

Chekhov wrote:It appears you think English, Korean, French, Japanese, German, Spanish, Arabic are just fine with you, with which I'd have to agree since I like all of them myself. I don't hate dead languages - there are quite a few I like, chiefly Biblical Hebrew, Classical Arabic, Classical Chinese and Old English - but I also don't tend to enjoy learning them as much as living ones.
