"At 5, I do not feel burdened. I also find that there's plenty of time to use these languages (my laziness is another story). I do feel that seven might be the right number. Maybe I'm mistaken.

I am beginning more and more to lean toward Spanish and Japanese rather than Russian and Portuguese. The first one shouldn't be a problem. The second ahem I'm not sure but it's doable. I'd love to learn Japanese. The question is should I make a "sensible choice" and go for the other two as I could acquire them more easily. I have worked out a few tables covering general usefulness questions and a few personal ones and Japanese comes out on top over both Portuguese and Russian. I do feel that Japanese would put a definite stop on any further expansion."

Hmmm....

1 x 22 minute cartoon episode = 1,500-3,000 words.

Occasionally I need to remind myself that 100 hours of such material is the equivalent of a War and Peace-sized tome (587,287 words).

WWII documentary: 96/96
2017 Ru = 100 hours

I ran into this article and I remembered Stepanova's words:
