I only know English and am looking to broaden my horizons so to speak. I love to sound of the Russian language, but should that be enough reason to learn?

  • I'm a russian language specialist. I recommend you to learn it! If you want to visit Russia, you to have basic leavel, because it's difficult without russian knowlege. It's verry rich language and different.It may be difficult to start but, be sure it's a new word that you discover. Hayfa Trabelsi about 6 years ago

    As learning another language can make travel much easier and then really broaden your horizons, I'd start by asking yourself which places Russian will take you. And are they places you want to go?
    What about Spanish? Or Mandarin? Or maybe music is a better language to learn? about 6 years ago

    YES! I love the sound of the Russian language too but it is very difficult to learn. It is a language that truly matches its people. If you can't appreciate the Russian people and culture then I wouldn't bother learning it. When I lived in Russia some foreigners hated the place while others loved it. about 6 years ago

    Like Christy said, it depends on why you are learning it.
    For functionality, Spanish, English, Mandarin. Those will get you through a lot of different places on this planet we call home.
    German and Japanese are always helpful for business and trade.
    Arabic wouldn't hurt depending on where you are heading.

    Russian sits at the top of my list though. It isn't terribly useful (comparatively) but I love the sound of it, the culture and the people. about 6 years ago

    I found Russian to be one of the most useful languages around beside English, Arabic, and Spainish. It is very useful when you traveled several large part of the world. These would include Mongolia, Germany Ukraine, former Soviet republic, Poland, Serbia, Syria, Israel and many other states. Now be aware that many of these countries attach the antagonism toward the Soviet past with the Russian language. Many guides would recommend not speak Russian in many of these countries, particularly Estonia and Poland. over 5 years ago
