Bonjour! Hola! Salve! 你好! Hae! Cześc!
My name is Bonnie and I’m passionate about languages. I’m American and I currently live on the East Coast in the US. I’m 27 and so far I’ve traveled to 7 other countries. I speak/am learning 7 other languages besides English, my mother tongue.
As a kid, I remember thinking that other languages were really cool. Like how you think being a spy would be fun and mysterious, or that a doorman gets to listen in on people’s conversations all day, or that you could find cool things in other people’s trash as a trashtruck driver? No, just me? I first took French in middle school, and it was just a fun class for me. But in college when I took my first French class, that was when I knew that I really loved languages. After that, I took Spanish and Chinese classes, and later on I started teaching myself languages. Now I’m a working adult, learning languages in my free time for fun!
I’ve blogged about languages on various platforms, but I decided that I wanted to write my own blog, so here we are. I’d like to share my personal stories, language resources that have worked for me, info about languages/countries/language learning that I think are cool, and to create a positive, safe, and welcoming space.
