I speak English and I am trying to learn French and Korean. What is the best way to learn other languages?
Roy: Learn the languages that are a little bit similar to your language.
Me: That's good advice, but Korean and English aren't so similar, like Japanese and English aren't so similar. So how can André learn Korean?
Roy: Find a Korean person and ask them to be your teacher.
Me: Any other advice for André?
Roy: Read lots of books in those languages.
[Adam's note: My sister was born in Korea, too. She was adopted by my parents when she was three years old. (I was five at the time.) She spoke Korean when she first came to the United States, but quickly lost her Korean ability and now speaks only English.]
Here I am, helping my little sister tie her shoes. (But I wasn't always such a kind brother...)
Thank you for your question, André! Roy and I wish you all the best at learning French and Korean! Keep trying, day by day, and you'll definitely make progress!

Najwa: My eldest sings and verbalizes his figures/cars stories in an invented language that has English sounds and Italian accent. Is it his way to disconnect from his multilingual world?

Adam Beck: Najwa, it's hard to respond to your question without knowing the full details of the situation. I suggest starting a thread at a suitable board and offering as much information about these circumstances as you can.
