Hi, everyone! My name is Emma-Louise and I'm a wannabe linguist from England. I've been interested in language and how it connects to everything and everyone since I was tiny, but I've only really started exploring linguistics and the communities surrounding it more intensively for the last couple of years.
I wasn't fortunate enough to study at University, so instead I teach myself and I share my findings over on my YouTube channel, where I will in no way complain should you choose to venture in that direction. My biggest interest is words, the importance specific ones hold in history and society and pretending I'm better at Swedish than I actually am.
Speaking of what I'm actually studying; Swedish & French for the time being, although I have dabbled in the odd bit of Greek, German, Turkish, Mandarin, Dutch, Spanish, Catalan, Esperanto, Russian & Japanese.
Outside of linguistics, I'm very interested in travel, international borders, staring at maps, cats of all shapes and sizes, fashion design, museums, photography ... and social media. I'm 25, Jennifer, we can't all be cultured and perfect like you.
I've attached a photo of my brilliant face so you know what I look like, in case I write something stupid in here later on and you need to laugh at me.
My name is Sergio and I have just found this forum; I'm working as a teacher in a online website and I'm always looking for new things to learn, interesting topics to show to my students, new resources and materials...
My mother tongue is Spanish, and I can manage in French, English and Portuguese. I have some knowledges of Italian nd German too, but not enough to have a fluent conversation...
This place seems very active and quite well organized, and that's a really good thing, I love it! So I think I'll stay around...
Thank to you all in advance!
Hello, my name is Irina, and I am from Saratov, Russia. For years and years English seemed quite enough for me, but recently I got a weird idea into my head to become a polyglot, so now I'm learning Mandarin Chinese and Italian, and my plans for the next two years contain French, German, Japanese and Spanish. I'm not sure yet that this list won't grow.
I can answer questions about Russian, so if you are learning this language, please do not hesitate to ask me to help.
