I suppose I'll introduce the languagey side to myself. I've lived in England all my life and am looking forward to moving somewhere foreign and fun. I'm a native speaker of English and Hungarian, though obviously living and going to school in Britain means I'm slightly better in English. I lack quite a bit of Hungarian vocab and my reading's not all that. I've studied French for... something like nine years, mostly in school. Not to boast, of course, but I'm probably the best in my class. (I'm wondering whether to use a smiley here; first impressions and all that.) But seriously, I'm motivated because I just think it's beautiful. The shame is I have this infatuation with almost all languages; I can spend hours on Wikipedia clicking the random button and then reading whatever comes up in Luxembourgish. I've also taken German, for six months and Spanish for two and a half years, but I now do neither, only French.
I've recently become interested in self-study, and I have some materials for teaching myself Japanese and Icelandic. Unfortunately it's so intimidating I've only got as far as the basic sounds of the latter.
I look forward to becoming a useful member of the community, learning new things and especially providing translations for people!
