The Official /int/ How to Learn A Foreign Language Guide Wiki

A Meme Language is a language that by many is considered to be a meme, or a meme to learn. "Meme" is poorly defined but in this case a meme language denotes a language that has one (preferably multiple) of the following traits:

  • Few native speaker and little (accessible) input
  • Very low popularity with (Anglo) learners
  • Disputed existence
  • A "funny factor" that often leaves it mocked
  • High difficulty (for Anglo learners)

Meme languages are worth considering if you don't want to learn a mainstream language, like Spanish or Japanese. Native speakers may be more enthusiastic about you showing interest in their culture, and there may be a lot for you to discover that most people in your circle don't know about. But meme status often comes with few resources, unfortunately
