About

After graduating from college I found that I needed an outlet for my thoughts about languages and language learning. My post-academic necessity became the mother of this blog’s invention. This is where I write about dialects, languages, language learning, polyglots, hyperpolyglots, philology and pedagogy. If you are interested in any of these subjects then I hope that you will check back here often and leave bits of your own findings and wisdom for the benefit of other readers.

I use languages at work whenever possible. I started a translation agency back in 2005 that helps educational organizations with over twenty languages. I have also been studying organizational behavior for the past four years. This has given me the opportunity to train and coach managers in English and Spanish. I’m preparing to apply to the MBA program at Brigham Young University. After that I hope to work with management teams from all over the world. My dream is to help leaders bring out the best in their people and to do it all in the native language of my clients.

  1. Hi there. On eduFire we just posted a listing of the Top 20 Language Bloggers on the Web (we did our best…I’m sure we left some good ones out!). Anyway, I wanted to let you know that you made the list!🙂 Here’s the link: http://blog.edufire.com/2008/06/19/the-top-20-language-bloggers-on-the-web/

    Also wanted to drop you a line as we’re looking to give away some free language tutoring sessions in the coming weeks and if this is something you’d like to offer to your readers I’d be happy to set that up.

    Keep up the good work and talk to you soon!

    i´d like to present you a project that might be of your interest,
    it´s an eLearning community that I am working on, where teachers, native speakers and students meet to share their languages and to open their minds to other cultures at the same time😉

    so here is the link, http://www.palabea.net

  4. it was very interesting to travel throughout your space! Thank you for sharing all these fascinating thoughts of you. I like to challenge myself to learn more languages , too. I am a Mongol . My first foreign language is Russian, and of course I do speak English,because my environment , like Minnesota requires me to talk in it. Now I am working on Spanish and Japanese. I think Mandarin Chinese sounds really beautiful , too
