What is your native language?

English.

What other languages do you speak or have studied in the past?

I'm part Taiwanese and speak conversational Mandarin. I regrettably left Sunday morning Chinese school after only one year because as a young child, I sadly didn't appreciate languages as much as I do so now. I also took French classes throughout high school and college. I learned Italian during primary school, since it was required in most schools through Melbourne.

What languages are you currently ACTIVELY studying and would like to practice and work on?

I do my best to speak Mandarin with my parents, family from Taiwan, and in restaurants/shops in Chinatown. I also try to improve my French through watching movies and reading. I work in the luxury goods industry, so improving my knack for languages is a plus.

Are you willing to help others learn your native language as well? This means spending 1/4th of your time at an event helping others with your language.

Yes, I would like to help other improve through speaking with them.
