Found out I am part Russian and I want to learn
I love languages. I always wanted to learn Russian
To be able to speak and understand Russian
Over a 35 year span, I plan on adequately learning 16 other languages and this is the eighth one to learn.
I want to learn Russian to be able to communicate with people if I ever travel there. Plus it's very similar to Ukrainian. (see item about learning Ukrainian) :)
The feeling of knowing something only few do in my country is extatic.
