In this video Ed and I talk about our experiences with learning languages that are less commonly learnt on a worldwide scale. In my humble opinion these are the best languages to learn, and for me the most fun! As you know I am learning Afrikaans and Ed is learning Serbian, but he has also learnt many other languages. We share what we have found are the advantages and disadvantages of learning these languages. We hope you enjoy this video and find it useful.
I will be making some videos specific to my experiences learning Afrikaans in the coming months. I would also like to write a little more in Afrikaans on here if you will excuse my mistakes 😉
