On January 16th I started my 90 day challenge in Chinese. I’m enjoying the process, and my comprehension is getting better by the day. While I am having fun, I’ve been toying with the idea of learning German. I was originally going to start with Japanese when my challenge was over, but there’s no way I’m going to able to learn the 2000 required Chinese characters before that time. I figured that learning Japanese while still trying to memorize the characters wouldn’t work. Thing is, Norwegian is my mother tongue, and it is a Germanic language, and English is heavily influenced by German, and because of this I understand quite a bit of German. Many words are similar, and many of them I can easily guess what means. So I i figured, why not German? I do have more than enough time to juggle two languages. In fact, I have enough time to learn even three, but that would be a little over the top. I will only be dedicating about 20-25% of my time to German, and the rest to Chinese. I will more than likely dedicate far more time to Chinese, but that’s the main idea.
Wish me luck!
