Japanese - because I find the English translations sometimes odd and hard to understand :P

Russian - neighbor language with a lot of common history and def interesting things to share, once you understand them (achieved) :)

those were two of the languages I wanted to learn the most

I don't think "a zig a zig aah" is the best English

I've always wanted to learn sign language and braille too! I'd say it counts


Me too!

But I don't know what sign language to learn because they are different in every country, just like languages.

Yes! Sign language is definitely something I wanted to and still want to learn. But like Olga said, it is hard to decide which one because they're as varied as verbal languages it seems.

Wow! I have been here in UAE for the last 8 years now, but learning Arabic words are really difficult for me because in my current job, we are surrounded by expats coming from a different culture with different languages but the primary language being used is English. We are using English words in our daily correspondences such as when sending emails to our client. I must say that learning a language is not a easy task, you must use and speak the language daily for you to be able to apply it correctly.

I tried learning Arabic when I was in Egypt, but only managed the basics, counting, hello, goodbye, please, and thank you

To be honest, none. There was really no reason to learn a foreign language where I lived.
