I'm a very fast learner, but I feel that the vital part of keeping fluency is usage. I became fluent in ASL, and I knew enough Japanese to carry on a decent conversation with native Japanese speakers. However, due to lack of use (ie: no one to converse with regularly), I lost my fluency.
I'm aiming to learn Italian and Romansh (standardized: Rumantsch Grischun) primarily, and then I would work my way from there. I've decided to make my own community to learn a single language, and hopefully with utilization and conversations with native speakers, I'll retain my fluency!
Anyways, that's why I'm here: I love languages. I'll be poking around so often.
