Well, I've been threatening to become a respectable linguist for several years now and so now I think it's time I got down to it! LOL! Here I plan to keep a brief record of my language studies - both in terms of actually learning foreign languages and also about language itself - the study of linguistics. Second language acquisition really interests me, especially multiple second language acquisition, i.e. how some seem to be able to absorb a number of foreign language at once when others can't. Some can learn new languages in sequence, ie when they're already past beginners level with another language, but others can take on two or more from scatch at the same time. Fascinating! To me, anyway!!
