"How did you become interested in Greek language?"

what's the difference between into and in? I understand that someone can be "into sth" but what if "you are in sth".

    Being "into" something is used only in informal speech. Being "interested in" something is standard language.

    We wouldn't use both "interested" and "into", because "into" (very informal) = "interested in".

    P.S.: "Sth" is neither an English word nor a standard abbreviation. The word is something.
