of DEC/20: My uni's language test determined me as a C2, but I think I still have some work to do to reach the native level, so plz excuse my errors thanks :-)
there is no doubt that learning the English language made me become the person I am today, and sort of "saved" me- I know, it's kind of a big statement to make lol, but the English internet has been my main source of comfort for years, before meeting my bestest friend; I met her on tumblr, she's from London and me, her and her sister have been inseparable ever since :'-) they (and their parents as well!) are the best people I know and I can't believe how lucky I got to meet them
it didn't only "save" me psychologically, but also academically: I adored English grammar (might not look like it lmao) and English literature in school, and I was able to get good grades even if my energy was way below 0.
of DEC/20: currently studying for the HSK4 and will hopefully reach it in February
I started seriously studying Chinese at the beginning of 2018. I already knew the basics, which made me confident enough to raise my hand in class and try to answer the professors’ questions. Since then, studying Chinese has always helped me calm down, regain focus, feel refreshed and even made me feel proud. I’m not the best of the class but I’m doing good, and I’m determined not to let my problematic competitive mindset ruin this for me.
I’ve decided to write my bio in Chinese and to use it here and there on this blog, hopefully it doesn’t look like I’m boasting!
honestly there haven't been updates since I turned
18 lol. Anyway I think I'm a B1
French........me and French have a complicated relationship, lol. Technically, I’d love to be amazing at it. I started learning it when I was 11, in middle school, and I used to hate it, haha. I think I don’t like Romance languages because they’re too close to my native language; several things seem so similar, yet are in fact pretty different and it confuses me. I also don’t particularly like France (if you’re French pls forgive me)— I mean, the places I’ve been to, aka Paris and random villages. That being said, I still want to visit new places in France and I’m determined to reach the C1 level (not C2 because that’s just not realistic lol).
come back later, my dude
Tigrinya is one of the most fascinating languages I’ve ever encountered. As far as I know, it’s spoken in Ethiopia and Eritrea, and the reason why I want to learn it is mainly because of Eritrea. I’ve never been there, but my country, ehm, c*lonised Eritrea, which means there are several Eritrean restaurants in my city, and even a sort of mini “Eritrea Town”. I’ve always adored their typical foods and loved how their language sounds and looks. One of my biggest dreams is to visit the country as a volunteer, and be able to learn even more about their culture.
As for now.. I have a grammar book, but no actual progresses have been made yet. I’ve added Tigrinya to this list because among the languages I’d love to learn one day, Tigrinya is the very first one. So yeah, maybe as a good luck to myself, lol.
