Language Whore

First of all:
Call me by your name.
Awesome book.
Check it out.

Second of all:
"Hm? 'Call me by your name?' Oh, j'en aime! Je l'ai fini lire à soir dernier, et je le va lire à ce soir!"

There's me, showing off my awesome powers of French verb conjugation. Go me! Anyway, I've gotten pretty good at French, and have now decided to teach myself...something else.

I've kind of started on Spanish. Think that'll please me? No sé...

Third of all:
I-'ve go-ot a sto-ry i-de-a, I-'ve go-ot a sto-ory i-de-a!

Anyway; that was a nice, aimless post. Mon dieu, I sure do like my language, don't I?

Ah, right.

It has just occured to me that, having nobody else to bounce it off of, my French may be totally wrong. So, can any totally fluent French talkers our there correct me?

May I be bold and recommend

May I be bold and recommend German? Spanish, after French, is not much of a risk.
