At ease with my ever unconventional existence. No regular internet access. Whatsapp voice and text seem to be it for now. On the odd occasion time to try a new penpal, snailmail and whatnot. Recently turned into one of those people who don't want to leave their garden behind. I suspect it is just the old man in me who has discovered planting is another artform. Curious and open conversers, this is yo' guy.
Hobbies and interests
Music, writing, ballet, dance, all of the arts really.

I can speak Spanish and French, but I struggle sometimes to find the word that I want to use. I can also understand German, but I am very slow when I speak. Puedo hablar español pero à vezes tengo dificultad à encontrar la palabra que quiero usar.

I'm studying French, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese and Dutch, and I'm looking for people who would like to have conversations in any of these languages. In return I can help you with Afrikaans and English. Why am I studying these languages? Why not? It's fun, and I enjoy meeting people from different countries and cultures and finding out what the world looks like from different perspectives. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Kon'nichiwa Mina-san! I have been learning Japanese for a year but I struggle to speak and I make countless mistakes. I can read both Hiragana and Katakana, so if you want to chat with me like that, you are more than welcome too. Unfortunately, I don't know Kanji yet. I'm a full-time English Teacher and Law student, so my replies are slow but I can help you improve your English. I am more accessible via Discord, or we can also use Skype. Let's be friends!

I am a student in South Africa. I can fluently speak Afrikaans and English, with Afrikaans as my home language. I primarily study ancient languages, but also appreciate and study some modern langages. Ek studeer in Suid-Afrika. Ek kan beide Afrikaans en Engels vlot praat. Afrikaans is my moedertaal. Ek studeer antieke tale, spesifiek Latyns en Grieks, maar ek het ook 'n groot waardering vir moderne tale. Tans stel ek in Frans en Japanees belang.
Hobbies and interests
I enjoy jogging, rock climbing, literature, music, and of course language learning.
