I have some interest in languages, but more from a practical point of view. I was deeply involved with patents of invention for many years, which explains my interest in Japanese and Chinese, and I did Latin at school, which is why I don't have too much trouble with the Romance languages, but my core education was in the sciences, specifically chemistry. The rest came along almost by accident.
If language is an interest of yours, there are two science fiction books you might enjoy in which language is central to the plot: "Babel-17" by Samuel R Delaney, and "The Languages of Pao" by Jack Vance. I enjoyed both of them, although I slightly preferred "Babel-17".
