My ultimate 50 year (age) goal

I have a new and very attainable goal. I’m 41. When I turn 50, I want to speak 4 foreign languages, fluently. My goal is to learn to speak and understand 1 new language every 2 years in the following order: Russian, French, Spanish, and Chinese.

My son (15 yrs old) is taking Spanish in school. After that he wants to learn French, then lastly Japanese. I got him hooked on lingq too.

Learning Spanish and French will be easier for me because I have a close friend who speaks native Spanish, and I have 4 years of high school French under my belt. Also, my son and I can study together.

I’m super excited and motivated to make this dream come true. So, for the next 9 years I will keep lingq updated on my progress.

Wish me luck!!

Tout mes voeux de réussite !
