#2: Learn a language (or two!)
While it can be very hard to learn a language, it can be fun at times, too! Plus it is very useful to know a second (or third) language. I already know some Thai so I'm going into the intermediate level and now I am starting to learn very basic Spanish. Below are some fun links you can use to help you acquire some basic language skills in these two languages. You can use Google to search for games/quizzes/lessons in other languages.
It can be tricky to find places that teach Thai but here are a few:

There are a lot more places that teach Spanish; here are some:

I want to hear from you. Do you know more than one language? If so, which ones? What languages are you learning?
