Hello everyone. I have just joined today.

I have been interested in languages for many years. I took an OU Diploma in German, but since I have not been to Germany for many years, I have forgotten much of the language. If I use it again, I know that I will pick it up again quickly.

Since studying German, my interest in languages has broadened out. Rather than study a single language intently, I am now sampling many languages. The latest to be sampled is Hindi. However, although I am sampling many languages, including e.g. Lakota, my main interests currently are Russian, Japanese and Arabic. In other words, I am doing more than sampling these three languages.

I also enjoy reading about language theory.

Hello everyone! My name is Elena and I am learning German (trying to reach B1) and Spanish (just have started, therefore A0 for now). I also hope to keep my C2 in Czech alive (I used to study in the Czech Republic but since I no longer live there, I don't use the language as much).

Hi! My name is Alejandro (shortened to Ale) and I'm learning French! I studied French as a third language in High School for some years, so I'm not a real beginner, but this was 10+ years ago. My two main motivations to resume (or restart) my French studies are:

- I love French cinema! Unfortunately, some films I'm really interested in don't have subtitles, so learning French would allow me to enjoy them.
- I would like to move abroad. I've always lived in Spain and I'd like to experience living in a different country. My SO studied French at University, so moving to a francophone country seems like the best choice.

Nice to meet you all!

Hi everyone! I'm denouement, I'm from the US, and, although I'm a bit of a language dabbler, I've never had much success. I recently had a breakthrough experience with some comprehensible-input materials, so now I'm trying to focus on input to finally cross into bilingual territory. If I'm successful with Russian, I'd like to follow it up with Spanish. I've lurked for a while, but this seems like the time to join!
