Hello there, new guy here! I'm here in America, where I was born and raised, and my native language is English. I've tried to learn many languages on my own, but almost everytime end up giving up due to self-esteem issues. Because of this, I know a few phrases in Miskito, Cherokee, Japanese, and Kannada. I can understand Spanish and Old English, but I can't write or speak either of them, because I'm out of practice.
However, I've been studying Hawaiian for quite a while, and have never given up or taken time off from it. I'd say I'm more than halfway to fluency!
Anywho, I'm really interested in the art of language for many reasons, too many to write about here without getting off-track.
Thank you for reading
