Hi,

I'm an old member of How to learn any language forum but hadn't signed in there for several years. I logged in today and was so disappointed to see lack of activity. Thankfully, I saw the thread about the forum's new location. So very glad to be here, and hoping this time around there will be no long hiatus in my language studies and participation here.

This group is just amazing, and I'm so glad so many of the old familiar names are around.

Hello Everyone.

I'm Paulo Cesar, from Colombia. I used to read and write in HTLAL forum 12 years ago (Here's my profile). At that time, I was struggling with my english and french. Since then, I have been certified C1 in English, French, Italian and Portuguese

Currently, I am a language teacher, I've started a youtube channel about languages and polyglottery (in spanish). Looking for some information, I realized that the ancient HTLAL forum was inactive but there's this new one and I would like to reactivate my writing habits.

I hope I can keep learning with this amazing community.

Hello,

I've been a lurker for a number of months and have decided to join in with a forum and its discussion. I'm currently learning Spanish, although I learnt French and German at school, so who knows why?

Hello,

Previous lurker back to regain her enthusiasm for languages. Starting a thread, have a penchant for spreadsheets and tracking, and looking for a community to keep me motivated for languages, since Instagram just isn't doing it for me.

I work with refugees and others at a state office in my city, so I'm interested in many diaspora languages. I studied Japanese, Mandarin Chinese and Korean (comparative linguistics yay) in college, but without use, they're calcifying and decaying.

Trying to find a way to ease myself back into actually using my languages, instead of buying textbooks and assuming by buying an audio course or pdf, I'll magically find the motivation to study 6 hours a day again.

I look forward to chatting with you all, and engaging in challenges together!

Hi, I'm Ariel. I'm 25 and I live in Bath, United Kingdom. I studied several languages at school, and then I got into linguistics through an interest in conlanging.

I studied linguistics at university, but I had a bit of a rough time there and fell off the language learning wagon. After graduating I decided to get back into it, and I'm now focusing heavily on Spanish. I've also since qualified to be a language teacher, and although I teach mainly English as a foreign language (and some Esperanto) at the moment, I'd like to start teaching Spanish soon. as a teacher and a learner, I skew heavily towards comprehensible input and storytelling.

I've been stalking this form for a while, so I've decided it was finally time to join, as I need somewhere to give me a bit of accountability with my language learning.

Hello, I'm Rosewyne, a university student planning on taking German in the upcoming fall semester. Between then and now, I'm going to try to get ahead using Duolingo and other sources. I'm interested in the language because its part of my heritage (although none of my living relatives speak it) and because I've always liked learning about ancient germanic history, such as the sagas of the Vikings. I've previously studied Spanish in high school (one of few languages available; it was between that, French, or Mandarin), so I have a bit of experience language learning. Things like grammatical gender and verb conjugation have come to me pretty easy due to that experience.

Other than German, I have a wishlist of languages I'd love to learn. Learning German has allowed me to meet some truly nerdy language learners and hobbyist linguists. Every time I log in onto one of my chatgroups, I learn about a new ancient or endangered language and thus my wishlist grows.

Hi, I'm a 31-year-old American woman who recently started taking German night classes for fun. I'm also very very slowly translating my way through Im Westen nichts Neues with the help of a dictionary, because I am not patient enough to wait until my German is better. On that note, if anyone understands what "Speckjäger" (bacon hunter???) means, I'd love to hear from you! My goal is to hit C2 by age 40, which should hopefully lessen the pain of that birthday. :)
