I'll submit the remaining 2 sections next week.

Re: Foreign Languages

Also, if you're interested in languages, or want to come back to one(s) you were learning before, my question is what motivates you? I'm motivated by the sunk cost fallacy. Whenever I invest a significant amount of effort in learning a language, I loathe the idea of abandoning it and forgetting wha...
