In a heaven of people only some want to fly


How fun to find a community devoted to languages! I'm a native English speaker born/raised in the US (southern California). I took French in high school but that was long ago and I've lost most of it, but can still read some. I taught myself Spanish for work and can carry on a conversation (especially if it's about a medical issue), but that's about it.

I spent a summer in Tokyo back when I was in college, and so know a bit of Japanese, and have tried to learn Arabic and Creole on my own, with variable results. Fortunately Creole is based from French, so that helps. I think my favorite of all of them is Arabic, it looks so beautiful on the page. I especially like the way Arabic is used in art.

Anyway, hope to get to know all of you.
