Student. Language learner. Grammar stickler. Sub-standard musician. Self-diagnosed obsessive compulsive.
Language is what I do. I can happily occupy myself with a German grammar book in one hand, a graded Chinese reader in another, a French novel in the other and an Italian podcast on my stereo. A staunch prescriptivist from England, I cringe at the thought of misplaced apostrophes, poor use of semi-colons and the gradual infiltration of modern-day Americanisms. I know there is nothing I can do about it, but that won’t stop me complaining.
This blog is dedicated to my linguistic and geographic adventures, all of which I hope will inspire others and provide a new perspective in the world of language learning. I encourage you to comment, contribute and criticise – I like a good discussion so please do get involved.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
P.S. I don’t really have three hands.
