Italian has been on my list for some time, especially since I love the opera. But I am not sure if I will ever get around to it before I get to the great language school in the sky. I can manage Spanish and some French (mainly reading), as far as Romance languages are concerned. I tried to pick up Dutch when living for a short period of time in Holland (a half-year sabbatical), but the Dutch did not co-operate. They spoke in English every time I opened my mouth and tried out a brief sentence in Dutch. LOL, they also discouraged me from learning their language -- it will be of no use to you, it's only spoken in Holland and Suriname, they said!
