Newbie alert!

Hello! People call me Doodle. I'm almost sixteen years old and going to be a junior in high school. I live in the United States. I've taken German since seventh grade, and next year I will be taking German at the local university. According to the results of my placement test, I'm going to be taking Advanced German Conversation (4301). I was surprised that I tested into an advanced class; my high school German classes were honestly terrible, and I tried not to get my hopes up, thinking I would get into an intermediate class (which is what I consider my level to be). I guess all of the studying I did on my own actually helped! Since I'll probably be the youngest (and most nervous) student there, it will definitely be an...interesting experience...!

I've always wanted to be a polyglot, even though I just learned the term for it recently (within the past year). Even as a kid, I felt disappointed that I wasn't raised in a bilingual family. I've dabbled into many other languages, but this summer I'm hoping to study just a couple. I'm a beginner in Esperanto, and I really want to try to learn Norwegian. I haven't been able to find many good online resources for it, though, and with Bokmål and Nynorsk and all of those different dialects, I'm not sure where to start. If anyone has advice or sites to recommend, I would really appreciate it!

Studying languages is a hobby of mine, but looking at communities like this makes me feel very much like a newbie. I hope I can learn many new things here!
