I don’t just want to learn Russian. I’m greedy when it comes to foreign languages. I want to learn many of them. I even have the slightly irrational goal of learning all the major Slavic languages – Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, Polish, Czech, Serbo-Croatian, Slovenian, Bulgarian – just because I love Slavic languages that much.
So, my question for any language learners out there is: when is an appropriate time to add a third language to one’s agenda? My three-year anniversary with Russian is coming up and I speak Russian pretty well at this point (though there’s still loads more for me to learn, of course). Obviously I am going to continue with my Russian, but I have considered the idea of adding another languages to my studies. (Remember how I was considering adding Spanish?) Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
