I'm referring to cases where very few people living in your area speaks that lingua franca that you want to learn.

Are you asking if fun is pointless?
>>
No OP, its not pointless.

But why the fuck are you trying to get approval from others to do something?

That is until you run into a person that does and you make people shit their pants cause you have the hook up.

>for fun
that IS the point
if you enjoy it, have at it senpai!

Depends on how serious you are about learning it.

For example, if you become fluent or close to fluent, it's a good skill to put on your resume and you'll be a good travel buddy if you go to where said language is spoken.
If you're just 'dipping' into it, you could potentially make friends with native speakers (/int/ could tell you about that stuff) and learn more.

Of course, it's really up to you and what you want. Do you want to put time and energy into it? Do you intend to use it? Where would you potentially use this skill?

I say if you have the time, go for it. Language learning can open up all sorts of cool opportunities.
>>
Dude, you are literally acquiring the ability to communicate to a whole new group of people, why would that be pointless? Life is crazy, who knows when it might come in handy
>>
No knowledge is ever perfectly isolated from your reality.

It might not be the most valuable thing you could do out of the infinite possibilities, but its not exactly a step backwards, is it?

You could also look at it as a risk-reward thing. Sure you could learn something everyone else is learning, for known benefits. Or you could make yourself unique, and hope there is a niche that no one else can fill.

Hey, it's been a whole 5 days since this OP last posted this identical query. He usually does it daily. Maybe he's trying to break the habit.

Meanwhile, ignore him.
