Congrats!!!I used to really like learning languages myself until I became tragically addicted to the Internet, eating up all my free time. I learned some Italian and Hindi in addition to my English and French, but now I can hardly bring myself to focus on a simple close-to-English language like German, despite being immersed in it. Pathetic, I know.Anyway, Persian is a really cool choice. Considering how central Iran has become to world events, it's interesting to learn more about their history and culture. I've picked up a few snippets from reading Persepolis and Reading Lolita in Teheran (my current light reading for my commute on the train -- should be listening to German lessons, but the train is noisy ;^) ).Arabic would be interesting as well. When I was living in France, a lot of the parents of other kids at my kids' school spoke Arabic as a first language, and I was tempted to take some of the classes I saw advertised for it.
Persepolis is an awesome movie! And I can definitely understand reluctance about learning German. That's one language that even I can't get excited about.
Good, it's not just me then (regarding German). I did my German lesson last night, though, so I'm being a little bit good. ;^)I love Persepolis. I think Marjane Satrapi is brilliant. It's my favorite film.
