Day 1: Your target languages and why you want to learn them.
Irish: Ireland is one of my favorite places. I have spent a lot of time studying Irish history and mythology. I love Irish music. I love the VSO order of the language, Hiberno English, and how differently the language conceptualizes things from English.
Swedish: My fascination with Swedish started off with a research paper I read on JSTOR (see a more detailed explanation in this post). I’m intrigued by the connections between Swedish and German. I like the musicality of the language. I’m also a big fan of Swedish musicians and mythology.
Latin: In the last few months, I’ve attended several webinars about multilingualism and linguistics, and so many people in them mentioned how much studying Latin helped them with other languages they were learning, so I started studying it. This one also transfers over as a great help to my secondary field, art history.
