What is your native language? (It's okay to put down more than one!)

English is my first language.

What language(s) are you interested in?

I am pretty proficient in French. I have also taken a few semesters of both introductory Spanish and Japanese. However, the languages I am most interested in learning now are Hindi, Urdu, Italian, and German.

What do you hope to get out of this meetup group?

The opportunity to learn and to be a geek about language and culture with others who have similar interests.


My name is Mara. I have a lifelong interest in language and culture--how they reflect and shape each other. I am joining this group to learn (and hopefully share) new ideas around language.
