Brazilian Portuguese is mainly spread through music, I guess (through soap operas in Portugal), and I know a lot of people want to learn it because of Capoeira. I've also heard it sounds sexy to foreign ears. What about your own language?

Ukrainian is one of the spreadest Slavic languages in the world, also it is one of the most melodious. I wish more people would speak it

Do you find that a lot more westerners are learning it now?

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Yes. Language is an integral part of your culture. Concepts that are important to you country are often integrated well into your language, such as the Dutch concept of gezellig.
