    I would go for Yoruba one of the most widely spoken languages of West Africa...

    So far i just know the basics that one uses in daily life...

    like "Olori Buruki Ni E" ( i cant type it i only know how to speak it, even the right letters arent on my keyboard so well... )

    Well
    IMO I think you should learn a language that you can practice,
    If not I don't see any future,
    OK Thats why I'm telling you,
    In my country is by law that everybody had to studied English,
    We know the grammar rules, but We don't apply it ,
    because we don't have anyone to practice, so we Knew but we don't use it, So is bad, well now I am studying in USA and realize that,
    everybody speck so fast,and my English is not so good as I believed before, you know, that is gonna happened to you, so I recommend you to learn a language that you can use , I don't know maybe near to you is a China town, learn Chinese for example ,
    OK I give you my personal opinion with my heart,
    I hope this help you to decide (and if you decide for Spanish you know I'm just here)
    and sorry for my English.

    I wouldn't mind learning Latin. The language interests me.

    I'd be more than willing to help people learn Latin, some Russian, or the arabic alphabet....just PM me if you want some pointers / grammar / vocab.

    I'm gonna get some books on Navajo, too, so in the near future you can count on help with that.

    I started back at Spanish classes yesterday, 2nd year. I'd pick instant Spanish to save the pain of these classes.

    Mostly. There are a few differences, however.

    None of that matters as long as you can read/write IPA, though.

    IPA is the international phonetic alphabet... Just so you can figure out how to say what you are reading.
