Introductions de un Argentijns-Amerikaanse Person

Recommended Posts

Hey~

I'm vrysius and I'm the American child of an Argentine, born and raised around Washington D.C. in the United States. My pronouns are He/They. I lived for a few years in NL and picked up a fair amount of fluency in Dutch from there, although I am out of practice and my grammar is probably terrible again.

When I was a child, I wanted to learn every spoken language in the world, haha. Now I just want to be fairly familiar with at least one or two languages per continent. Unfortunately, with everything else I have to put energy into in my life, this might be kind of an unobtainable goal. I work by day in Networking and Systems Support, and have a strong desire to write and publish fiction. I am technically working on a novel and a video game script (in English). I am also becoming very people-oriented and invest a lot of time supporting my friends and family.

Anyway...!

I am currently primarily focused on increasing my fluency in Spanish. My mother was very invested in my English literacy to the point where she never spoke to me in Castellano and only taught me rudimentary basics when I got older. Some of it I actually rejected for a time and I am really hoping to be able to reclaim an important part of my background. Also, Spanish fluency is just a really good life and social community skill to have in my area.

Outside of that, I have been wanting to increase German fluency out of fancy, and I want to learn ASL because I find it important for every hearing person to be able to assist the Deaf/HOH by learning ASL. Distant linguistic goals also include familiarity with Arabic and at least one major language from the African continent, but I have not chosen which would be meaningful or pragmatic enough to me to justify learning it without coming off like a language imperialist.

Sorry I am verbose! I hope to gain a lot from this forum! :)

      Hey guys,
      I'm Gus. Always looking for ways to improve my English, and share my knowledge of Spanish, my mother tongue. I would also like to invite you to my new channel enespañol. It consists of a series of youtube video tutorials on how to learn Spanish, and it's designed for non-native Spanish speakers. You can find them on Facebook as Enespañol or @enespan0l

      Thanks,
      Gus

      Hey guys, I wanted to share this great directory of free language learning resources.  
      The site is specific to Spanish, but many of the apps and resources are available in all languages. 
      Hope this helps!

      Hello, looking for a pen pal to help me with my Chinese writing and grammar. I would like to send short essays and have them corrected, and I would be willing to do the same for my pen pal. Of course, if you are not looking for writing and grammar help with English, I would be willing to help you with speaking as well. I would like someone who has good standard mandarin grammar.
      About me- I'm an American English teacher living in Beijing. I watch the news obsessively and I want to get a masters in International Relations (particularly US-China relations). I love reading, watching cartoons, and cats. If you'd like to be my pen pal, please send me a message or reply in the feed.
       
      你好,我想找到笔友,为了提高我写作和语法能力。(我的语法很不好)我要发给你一个小文章,然后让你改写。你当然也可以发给我英语文章,但是要是你不想写作,我们也可以用英语聊天。笔友应该有很好的语法。
      我是一个美国的英语老师。我现在住在北京。我喜欢看新闻,而且我想读研究生(外交)。我喜欢读书,看动画片,养猫。如果你想跟我一起练习,请发给我信还是回复在这里。
