Hello everyone! My name is Nina, I'm 18 years old and I'm from Serbia.

My native language is Serbian. I'm learning English (C1) and German (B1) and hopefully, I'll find the courage to start learning French.
Next year I intend to enrol a college for foreign languages, and I hope to study German. In order to do that, I must start learning more seriously and I hope this forum will help me with that in terms of motivation and accountability.

I stumbled upon this forum by accident, but I'm so glad I did. Seems like a really friendly and ambitious place. It's just what I was looking for!

Good evening, my name is Jeff and I am from the United States. I just started German and I want to bring my Spanish fluency back up to a C1 level (currently around B1).

I used to lurk on the old forum site years ago but never posted so I am hoping to change that. Merry Christmas!

I'm from Germany. I started learning Chinese nearly a year ago but got interrupted by the pandemic chaos and a sudden urge to escape into online games. Some weeks ago I had enough of the games and now I'm ready to start over again.
As a side project I'd like to improve my spoken English since I've got a new colleague who doesn't speak German very well. My pronunciation is a complete mess because I learned the language from reading and didn't have any audio available at this time. Not sure, how to proceed here... confronting a stranger with weird noises is not very high on my agenda which makes language exchange partners a no go for the moment. I guess shadowing is my best bet in the beginning. But learning Chinese comes first.

Hey everyone! I'm a 21 year old university student in the United States studying Computer Science and Japanese! My goal is to apply to the JET program to be able to to teach English in Japan for a year or two after I graduate college. After that, I don't know what comes next but I do know I want to keep studying languages! I'd like to start learning Spanish sometime in the next couple of years, and from there I have a few languages in mind that I'd like to get into (Arabic is one of the main ones!). Anyway yeah that's me, I'm glad to be here with other language enthusiasts. :)

Hi everyone! I'm Áine, I'm from Ireland and I'm studying German at university. Last year, I also started learning Russian, but I haven't made much progress yet.
This year, my New Year's resolution is to improve my languages. Last year, I struggled a bit to find good resources and to motivate myself to learn Russian, so that's where I'm hoping that joining this forum could help.
Happy New Year to every one of you and I look forward to discovering more about language learning through this forum!

Hello, this is chamomile233. I'm technically not new here since I used this site under chamomile232, and forgot the email address associated with it. But I'm not interested in getting it back and decided to go create a new account instead.

I was learning Korean for quite a long time, and momentarily stopped somewhere around mid to late 2018. I got renewed interested in learning it again after speaking with a few Discord users about achieving impossible goals, so I got motivated to come back to this site after a long while.

I'm probably somewhere intermediate. I apparently have a very slight accent, but other than that, people say my pronunciation is good. My listening skills I think are the best, while my writing is the worst.

I also have interest in learning Japanese since I've started to use Twitter, and am thinking about taking JLPT sometime this year at my local university.
