    What language do you wish you had been taught from a very early age? I mean really taught (or even immersed in), not the half-assed introduction students get in public school to Spanish or French.

    Dutch. Because I would have grown up realising that the Netherlands seems like a beautiful country, and I could visit it without having to worry about learning the language, as I would know it already.

    I got stuck with learning Indonesian instead, like the majority of kids in this country.

    I took 4 years in high school but didn't continue after that. It's classy and romantic.
    Like me. :D

    I don't know about "classy and romantic" although it is a romance language so...

    Anyway, would you have cause to use it often if you were proficient?

    I like that, but would you ever have a chance to use it?

    Nope. Not unless I went to France or Quebec.
