Do you have one more language that you once learned but then give up on that?
We may study lots of languages during the life. That may be caused by a diversity of factors such as travelling, migration\immigration, studying at higher education institution etc. So, did it happen to you that you, for instance, proceeded practicing your English but stopped doing that with another language?

I learned Chinese for couples of years but didn't progress much. I couldn't say I totally gave up on it, still waiting for perfect opportunity to restart learning Chinese.
I was learning Hebrew but had little opportunities to use it.
I have never given up learning or developing my my knowledge in other languages such as French.I also give courses in French. Recently I have started learning German and I might admit that it is not easy for me but I keep on learning it, listening Rammstein songs.Moreover, my third foreign language is Italian and I try not to loose skills in Speaking,Reading.So, when I have time I listen to Italian songs, radio to memorize what words, vocabulary I know.
Yes, it was German because I was going on holiday.
Chinese and Hebrew. But i am trying them again this year and i refuse to learn a new language before i could master a bit of those two.
If you want to learn I believe practice makes perfect! Just keep on trying. Remember that a quitter is always a looser. Believe and it will happen. Make it happen. Don't quit nor give up.
Yes, I was actually learning isiZulu because I really needed to learn it in order to go and teach in a school that required me to learn isiZulu. It was very hard and when my time was done I eventually gave up on going for classes to learn that language.
Yes,I learned French for a couple of years also .
Well, not really that I gave up on the language. I studied and learned Chinese when I was in school for it was our 2nd language next to English but because I wasn't able to practice and use said language, I tend to forget the language as time passes by.
No, never, even in the wildest of my dreams, I've ever thought of learning one more language. After my mother tounge 'Hindi' , 'English' was the only language that I loved the most & still love. I must say that 'English' is my passion.
