Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are your travel plans for the near future?

A: I hope to go to Italy sometime soon, as well as to many countries in Europe in general. I'm also quite interested in making my way to South America and Asia...which isn't too far away. ;)

Q: When did you get interested in languages?

A: I've been interested in learning languages since I was a child, but this dabbling turned serious once I was about age 10 and was exposed to more and more television shows and music from other countries.

Q: Why did you start a blog?

A: I've blogged for many years, albeit infrequently, and I recently decided that actual progress in one of my hobbies (learning languages) should be paired with progress in another (web stuff/blogging).


Have a correction for one of my translated posts, or just want to talk? The best way to contact me for chatting is through e-mail. I will also reply to Facebook and Twitter messages (less so to Twitter messages). And, obviously, the best way to contact me professionally is also through e-mail. :)
