To those who learned another language. What was the easiest way to learn it? And how long did it take you to reach fluency? How long and how often did you practice?

I want to learn:
American Sign Language
Japanese
Greek
Italian

I feel like it may be a good idea to learn 2 languages at the same time so long as they are significantly different. So for instance, I feel like I should be able to learn sign language while also studying say Greek. After all, one is a visual language while the other is spoken. No way I can get those mixed up.

Then after that, perhaps learn Japanese and Latin at the same time.

In my case it was being immersed in the language and the culture, and I just ended up picking it up. Fluency took roughly four-five years.

If anyone is interested in learning American Sign Language. I'd be down for having Skype sessions. I'm trying to pick the language back up again and I figured having people to practice with would be a good idea.
I'm currently following along with the free lessons on lifeprint.com

I've been considering learning ASL. It would have come in handy for my job loads of times.
