Welcome to another Sunday Poser.
My question this week is;
Have you or do you want to learn a new language?
I grew up in a society where speaking at least a couple of languages is very common. Urdu, our national language and a regional language, which in my case is Punjabi. I learned English in school as it is the medium of instruction in most good schools, perhaps a legacy of British rule. In addition to this most Muslims learn to read Arabic because our holy book, Quran is in Arabic.
So I am fluent in Urdu and English, and can speak and understand Punjabi. I am not very good at reading and writing Punjabi as it is a difficult language to master. As for Arabic, I can read and write it but I cannot understand spoken Arabic. The language of Quran is old Arabic and I can understand some of it but the modern Arabic is quite different from it.
And yet I still want to learn another language; Persian. I love how musical it sounds. Maybe one day I will realize this dream of mine. Nowadays, learning a new language online is not that difficult, just time consuming.
So what about you? Have you learned a second/ third language or plan to do so?
