I don't care very much for the Chinese language and I don't think I'm ever going to try to learn it... It's too different for me. I like my languages Indo-European. I do admire people who are passionate about languages outside the family but that's just not my thing.
I made it sound as if I were some kind of polyglot. I'm not. I speak only two languages fluently, Polish and English. Hindi sounds interesting. How's it going for your mother?
