A psychologist said that I am over curious. She told me it is good and make me know everything, but too much is not good. It was true what she said. Curiosity encourages me to learn many things. When I was a child, I even want to know what the feeling of dead people. I also want to know how hurt it was to fall down into the well, to be hit by car, etc. It was horrible.
But now, I want to understand many foreign language. My first language is Madura, but it was only spoken language. I also speak Javanese (Spoken only). I also speak and write Bahasa Indonesia and English. I started learning English when I was in the sixth grade of elementary school. Those foreign languages I want to learn are:
I like the sound of this language. The first time I got interested in Spanish was when I listened to Josh Groban’ song Alejate. The sound is so beautiful. Then I started finding some tutorials and try to use it. I found some Facebook groups for Spanish learners. It is also the second most used language in America.
I got interested in Mandarin after I read a book which was translated into Bahasa Indonesia in the library of my campus. The book was a history book of Chinese Literature. How great Chinese people in the past appreciate poetry. Even many kingdoms use poetry as a tool to recruit staff of the king. Chinese literature is also high value, having a lot of moral teaching.
A long ago, I was interested in French after I heard about Surrealism which was found by André Breton in French. I also heard that French is known as romantic country. However, After the conflict of Russia – Ukraine, I watched a lot of video on cnn, bbc, Al Jazeera, PressTV, etc. about the conflict. I did it almost every day. I was engaging with Russian language through the videos. I was curious about the writing system which was different from others.
Many people in my country Indonesia learn French. People who can speak French are easy to find job here. I learned it last year, self learning, but I gave up because of the pronunciation. It was so strange for me. But, I will learn it later.
I am not interested in German, actually, but I like the people. They are discipline. German is the Europe economic power, isn’t it. It is also the popular language to be learned by people in my country.
