Howdy!

The place to introduce yourselves.

I am not offended at all by somebody being religious and mentioning it (despite being atheist to the core) and I think we should just drop the issue. It's just another fact about someone, like the colour of their hair or what they like to eat for breakfast, albeit more important to them than those things.

Anyway, that's quite an impressive array of languages you've studied. How proficient are you with them? Could you rank them on a scale of 1-10, maybe?

I'm just always curious about people who introduce themselves with references to religion. I also feel that that is a personal relationship, and I've never felt that the Catholic Church (the religion I'm most familiar with) encouraged that God would be the relevance of someone's life, but then I don't really like organised religion that much anyway, I prefer personal spirituality. I wasn't trying to be argumentative, but I understand if it came across that way. So I'll leave that as my last word, but feel free to reply to me if you so wish.

How proficient does 3 years make you, and are you at a similiar standard in Spanish and French, and a similiar standard in all the others? Do you find it difficult to learn multiple languages at the same time, or are you trying to learn a bit of everything instead of being fluent in one or two?
Native: English
Very good: Irish
Reasonable: German, French
Very basic: Latin.

I am very interested in Native American Languages and study those when I have half a chance. I also greatly enjoy researching lesser known languages and writing systems as well as Historical Linguistics and Semantics. :)

Marry me! :lol:

This is great, another signer and another Danish learner, that makes three of us each!



Oh, WOW!! :) I feel so loved now, j/k
