Hey, all y'all.|
I'm just curious about learning Russian and/or Chinese.
I can read, write, speak Spanish, am rusty in French, can probably squeak by reading Portuguese, Italian and Romanian, maybe. These are all Roman/Latin based languages and use mostly the same type of letters, not counting accents, e.g., (á,ñ,ç, etc.).
So has anyone in TQC with similar language background ever tried learning languages with different scripts like Russian, or Chinese? Arabic? Hindi?
And like how difficult was it, and how long to feel a little competent?
