I love languages of Southeast Asia

Postby Bai » Mon 03 Dec 2012 5:30 am

Hi everyone!
I'm here because I love to learn languages and I'd like to meet some people with the same interests. I'm a native speaker of Russian, and I feel like I got lucky with this, because Russian is a nightmare for any language learner. My favourites are tone languages of Southeast Asia. My dream is to master all major languages of the region.

Welcome to Omniglot, Bai!
(I must not pun. I must not pun. I must not pun.)

Russian is indeed a tough language to learn; one of the toughest. And the fact that you've got a good grasp on English is another advantage!

I have to say, though, learning all the major Southeast Asian languages? That's pretty ambitious.
The hardest part is keeping fluency once you get there.
Native: English
Fluent: C++, C, Javascript
Non-Fluent: Spanish

Thank's, Anoran. Well, I like ambitious goals, they help to get maximum results. From the place where I live I basically can get to any place in Southeast Asia in two hours. So maybe keeping fluency won't be a problem.
