It's extremely interesting. Old Persian is one of those languages where you can read everything written in it within a week once you know how, so it's no problem to learn all the detail. Sanskrit is one of the three most important languages (the others being Latin and Greek) in my field, so I have to master it to the point of passing a doctoral qualifying exam, so again, plenty of detail. Akkadian is not an Indo-European language (I'm an Indo-Europeanist), so I will be learning it in far less detail: enough to read some Gilgamesh with help, but I'm not taking the really advanced courses. It is, however, a very logical language, without a lot of irregularity and exceptions, so I will be learning most of the grammar.

It's all really very exciting.
