Which languages do you speak fluently and which ones are you learning?

I speak English and Spanish fluently and I am currently learning French!

In the language(s) you are learning, what is your current level of proficiency in each?

I am a beginner, perhaps creeping up to intermediate proficiency with French. Spanish pretty strong but could always use more vocabulary.

Tell us about your interest in language learning...

Language learning is fascinating to me partly because of the challenge but also because of the vast history that is wrapped up in a language (it's development and evolution, culture, people). With help from others I am the creator of the online language learning lab "Spanish Wizards". I honestly believe it to be the best place to learn Spanish online because of our focus on natural, interesting content from native speakers (with text and audio) rather than word games and grammar drills. Check it out!

If you could share one tip for someone learning a new language, what would it be?

Spend a lot of time listening to progressively more difficult natural conversations and start speaking sooner rather than later. It'll sound silly, but "talking to yourself" by speaking whatever words and phrases you know (in your car while your driving, for example) is a personal favorite technique ;)
