Rate the languages you know and provide in what order you learned them. Maybe how good a language seems depends on how many early experiences are tied to it.
For example I read Harry Potter in German first (I was 12), and found it amazing, then in English it seemed robotic and unrelatable.

My favorite languages:
1. Russian
2. German
3. French
4. English

The order I learned them in
1+ 2. Russian/ German
3. French
4. English

Just Portuguese (native) and English. I don't really remember when I "learned" English, I think I was about 11 or 12.
>>
I haven't fully learned a language yet, but I've dabbled in Norwegian/Swedish and some very minor Japanese. I'm currently committing to Russian right now and I have been for a few months. So far Russian is my favorite. Would any of you guys some pretty good resources for learning Russian? All I have is pic related.

If you want to be repulsed, I'm in USA, and I was suggesting topics for argumentative essays to my students today and mentioned the topic of increasing emphasis on bilingual studies in K-12 education. Half of them sort of snorted at the thought. As an American, I feel shame how little we emphasize the value of learning multiple languages.

So my list, these languages I'm pretty shitty at and haven't much practice in for a few years at least, won't even lie.

Order of learning:
1. English
2. French
3. Latin
4. Japanese

Favorite Languages:
1. Latin
2. Japanese
3. English tied with French

Learn basic grammar and spelling, the most common words (around 500 or so), then read novels and watch movies/tv. If you want to be an expert, add scientific/technical literature to the mix.
I think this is the best algorithm to learn languages in general.

Get a tutor, make up some goals that involve going to Russia, make Skype friends. My parents are Russian, and I grew up speaking it yet there are still things that make shake my head. It's a nightmare to learn, but the lit makes it worth it, and when I see foreigners speak it all I think is 'l33t patrician tier og' .

American here, I'd done horribly when I was forced to learn Spanish in high-school, but excelled when I was given the choice to study Chinese in university.

What I'm really trying to say is:
In America, just English is just fine, thank you.

Of course forcing people to learn other languages when they don't want to is stupid. The problem is the anti-intellectual culture due to which you won't want to learn other languages in the first place.
