    English has the biggest lexicon, and that makes it the most expressive. There are nuances of meaning that simply do not exist in a language like French or Russian - the poor buggers don't have enough words for that. Even the much-ballyhooed "Classical" languages have extremely small lexicons.

    So if you know English, you know all you really need to know.

      English. I dont have a reason to learn anything

      English is a jack of all trades, master of none. Until you know another language, you have no clue what you're missing. It's like a colorblind person discussing art palettes.

        我識三種語言:廣東話、韓文同埋英文。即使咁,我都同佢贊成。其實,我會話我知道廣東話同韓文缺乏啲咩。英文肯定唔會漏咗啲重要嘅嘢。英文唯一嘅問題係作家太驚用唔啱呢種語言。我哋睇早期現代英文嘅文本都冇問題,但係要不係佢哋唔夠技巧,要不係佢哋驚出唔到書,但係冇人會去寫啲有好多上下文嘅英文。

      I really believe that, unless you're a linguist, foreign-language acquisition needs to accompany a philology-style deep dive into a language's history and culture to stay rewarding.

      I don't envy anyone who knows more than 3 languages, because that's almost a guarantee he engages with foreign languages in a shallow way. You simply don't have enough time or energy to give all of French AND Russian AND Italian AND German their due diligence. The smart move is to pick whichever culture looks the deepest to you, and dive very deep until you hit the bottom.

          Sure. In practice, do you see anyone doing this? Nietzsche had his Greek and that was it; Borges had his English, that was it. We learn one foreign language to a profound degree, and the rest are generally fluff, a boy scouts' badge to puff up your ego.

            The more I read the biographies of authors and geniuses the more i think this is right. I seriously doubt many of these people were able to be fluent in all these languages and pursue the other things in their life. I think its just that back then people had lower standards for what they considered "knowing" a language. Nowadays you wouldn't really say you know a language until you near fluency.

          • 1 month ago
            Anonymous

            They were fluent, but to a shallow level.

            In the past, European nations had their own unique cultural spheres, unique ideas, concepts, histories, etc. You can read Goethe in English and you'll get a shallow picture of Goethe. Or you can learn German, and get a slightly deeper picture of Goethe. But to get a truly full picture of any author, you must study the time period in which they lived, who they communicated with, what they believed, and so on. Learning German or French or Japanese will not take you to this level of understanding, but it is necessary to learn these languages to truly understand Germany or France or Japan.

            Likewise, if your learning of the language is not accompanied by deeper study of the relevant culture, you're going to hit a ton of bottlenecks as you keep reading and ideas/people/jokes/events come up that you don't understand.

            What about Schopenhauer, Unamuno, Calasso, Dávila, Gottfried, Marx, Engels, Mezzofanti, Powell, etc? It used to be pretty standard for scholars to know upwards of 6 languages. And yes, you can read a language on a deep level without knowing how to speak it.

            I do agree with your initial point, but I think that the idea that because one can only "perfect" one or two languages, acquiring any more than that is meaningless, is rather stupid. There are many uses for languages.

        I think you misunderstood my point
        For me the goal of learning a language is that, eventually, I will be able to read and understand my TL as if it were my NL
        Meanwhile there are a lot of people who do not share this 'all or nothing' mindset when it comes to language learning
        A lot of people are just happy being able to have a very basic conversation at a cafe and some people are extremely happy being able to watch TV and get a good gist of what's going on
        People learning Classical languages would be happy reading 5-10 pages a day of an author like Cicero because for them, it's an extremely satisfying experience to be reading in the TL that they love so much

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          Btw my feelings on this subject are probably due to the fact that I chose my TL because I thought it was logically the best choice for me
          I chose French because the French language seemed unmatched in terms of the number of canonical authors and also because it's a relatively easy language for EFLs to learn
          I never felt a great passion for France, when I started learning French I thought the language just sounded so-so, I didn't care so much about the history of France and I had only read a single French book in English translation prior to learning it

          You wrote
          >understanding my TL isn't as great as it used to be

          This is what I was addressing. The guys who are "Just happy to read 5 pages of Cicero" don't exist. Or rather -- they do exist. But what happens to them? The excitement of reading in Latin fades, and the effort and time Latin demands of them to read harder texts outweighs what they actually gain from reading in Latin vs. an English translation. Once you hit that point, you realize in concrete terms what you're working for. And for most people, it's a shitty time investment.

          I'm not claiming Cicero isn't better in Latin -- obviously he is. But once you manage to successfully read Latin, you understand, "Oh, this is what I was working for." You can keep practicing to read Plutarch and Livy if you like -- but a ton of people won't. How many people who say they want to learn Latin actually read these guys in English?

          See what I mean? Language learning is specifically for people who obsess over another culture (or linguists). Unless you *truly* love Roman writers (or scientific naming), don't learn Latin. You'll just waste your time. People think languages are like one night stands. They're really marriages.

        Why, aren't they pretty mutually intelligible?

          Yes, probably more than some Arabic dialects. It only differs a little in pronunciation and writing.

            Well yeah a lot of Arabic "dialects" are effectively different languages.

          My Spanish SO can read it without much difficulty (enough to read a novel) but can't follow it when spoken.

    I'm American. I'm only fluent in English. I can read some Latin and I'm getting close to fluency in Japanese. I can function in simple Spanish when I have to, but it's just what I've picked up from friends or coworkers.

      Chinese is useful, though depends what "useful" means to you, what you emphasize the most, whether it's for your professional career, speaking with foreigners, literature, etc.
      I want to learn Spanish, I'm thinking of moving to Spain to teach English and tutor and meet Spaniards and read Don Quixote, for all of the reasons I listed but perhaps for my professional career the most

      Is classical Arabic so different from Tunisian Arabic that it counts as a second language?

      The language I can read and write the best in is English, but in terms of speaking fluency my Chinese slightly has an edge over English. I have moderate fluency and literacy in Malay, and limited fluency in the Hokkien dialect.

      >Hokkien
      Also pretty based. Min is a branch that split off before the rest of the Chinese dialects ("dialects") and preserves some archaic features, right?

        Im not sure about the history of Min, I just know it because it's how my parents and grandparents communicate. But honestly structurally it is not very different from Mandarin, just some differences in the term usage.

          The literary/vernacular reading doublets seem interesting. It also has a lot less homophones, right?

      there’s a story about a guy who’s about to be executed for treason and the king asks the dude if he has any last words, and the guy tells a joke and becomes the court jester.
      it’s kinda like that.

            I used to be very interested in language learning, i participated in language learning communities, dabbled in german and a couple other languages. I would pick up a language, get a hold on the basics and drop it over and over again (it happened with German multiple times), and this continued for quite a long time until i've finally swallowed the blackpill. I will never learn another foreign language because i know how much time and effort it takes to actually become fluent, and i simply lack motivation beyond a casual "yeah it would be cool to know this language".

            Me too. I took knowing English and my mother tongue for granted because I learned both as a child. I found it interesting and even considered studying Linguistics. I have picked up and dropped many languages. I just don't have the motivation or reason to learn anything.

        Yes, and Latin is also harder than French. That's not really relevant to Mandarin.
