• It will depend on how often you study it and how much you expose yourself to it, along with many other factors. I learned French in high school over the course of 6 years. I'm still not fluent, but I can hold a conversation and can read books as long as they are not too advanced. So I would say that I am at a moderate level. . Currently I am learning Russian. I try to dedicate at least 30 minutes a day to learning it, but realistically don't expect to be fluent in it, or even at a moderate level for quite some time yet. Everybody is different though and will learn at a different pace. Maybe you'll learn a lot quicker. . Just out of curiosity, what language are you thinking of learning? And how much time do you intend to put into it?
  • Fluency comes with practice, so the more you can use a language the better you will be at it. Living in the place where the language is spoken is the best way to learn it. Studying a foreign language is probably the best exercise you can give your brain. Enjoy!
  • I learned some German ((dialect) when very young. Since children were seen and not heard, I didn't get to practice speaking. But, I learned to understand what I heard. I don't know how long it took but It's almost all gone now because I don't have a chance to use it. Sorry, can't give you a good answer.
  • 01-02-2017 There are some people who can learn a new language while they are on the plane going there. Of course, they already knew 30 or more languages, so a lot of their learning is just noticing similarities and variations.
