Hello all,

for the longest time, I've always wanted to learn a second language. The thing is, I don't know how to start off... what are the common steps to start to get involved in this language? How intense should I study and whatnot?

Any learning materials and or suggestions is most appreciated.

This might sound n00bish, but any words of advice is helpful

Buy children's books or comicks for juniors, translate them and work it up from there. Or watch popular shows that haven't been dubbed.

I haven't yet decided, so that's why I'm just asking around to see the steps and tools I can use.

I'd like to learn Korean and Spanish...
just because they seem to interest me a bit these days.

Maybe start off with Spanish? it'll probably be easier than learning Korean, because Spanish and English are closer on the family tree of languages than Korean..
Unless you're good at memorizing how different symbols look like.?
Better Korean than Chinese! LOL
no seriously, it's good you want to start learning a language that's based on an alphabetical system like english.

P.s. watch a lot of korean variety shows~! they're so interesting and you also get a look at their culture and the way they interact with each other. I dk much about spanish. so gl with that keke
