What is your native language?

English.

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

I am not actively studying any new ones, but would like to practice particularly German and French, and perhaps remove some rust from the others. I have written articles on my website about the Japanese, Chinese, and Korean writing systems, although I do not speak those languages. I have also written about the Cyrillic alphabet, with learning hints for travelers, and a bit about the Greek alphabet and Turkish writing system, although I don't speak those either. One needn't speak a language to find it interesting.

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.

How did you find out about us? NOTE: You must include a name, a real photo (no pets or art) and fill out the entire profile to be accepted, without them you will be automatically declined.

At a Middlebury College Language Schools function through Allan Chin and Mykhaylo Bonovskyy.

Introduction

I am the essayist for my website, Travelanguist.com, which describes my experiences in extensive world travel as they are influenced by languages. I taught languages on the secondary level for 28 years.
