I have studied German for some time now (standard High German and Bavarian), and some Icelandic. I want to pick a third to study now, and I cannot decide between Finnish, Afrikaans, Russian, or Mandarin. Which is most interesting? I look at the “coolness” factor of a language rather than usefulness. Which is why I’ve studied German and Icelandic (both useless in Texas) over Spanish. Not bashing it, they are far more interesting to me. I love learning languages and hope to one day be able to speak 10 or more.
