What am I?
I am a huge language nerd. Seriously. I spend at least 2 hours a day knee-deep in languages that are not my native tongue. I have learned 3 foreign languages to an advanced level, and various others to lesser degrees. I am also enrolled in an editing program in University so that hopefully one day soon I can switch careers and make a living off of working with languages.
I am a huge lyrics nerd. Some of my favourite lyricists are John Mayer, Brandi Carlisle, Brandon Flowers, and Kim Namjoon.
What am I not?
I am not a native Korean speaker. I learned it just like you’re going to/are in the middle of doing. That means I have a good understanding of what parts of the language may be difficult for a native English speaker to learn, and how to best teach those parts.
I am not a professional teacher. I do, however, teach a handful of language classes locally as a volunteer, and I’m told I’m pretty good at teaching.
