Which language shall I learn?I mentioned last time that I shall focus on learning Russian this year. So, shall I take Russian lessons in this challenge? I haven't made up my mind yet because I have the rest of this year to focus on learning Russian, meanwhile, I have only several hours in this language challenge. Would it be better if I take lessons to improve languages that I have known? Or learn a new language, in this case, Russian?
Anyway, don't wait any longer, click here for registration, and learn any languages you want with abundant of professional teachers and tutors from around the world. Good luck!
