Hello! My name's Valerie and I'm a native speaker of American English. I just moved to Dreamwidth from LJ and I was hoping to meet some more people who love language learning, so I joined this community. :D

My main passion is Japanese, though I'm still not quite fluent yet. Working on it! I'd call myself ~advanced~ though, I think.

Meanwhile I'm currently studying Vietnamese but I'm having a lot of trouble with it. It's my first time learning a language with such a high degree of...um...."if you don't pronounce my large number of vowels and tones completely perfectly you will be completely unintelligible"ness. It's getting a little frustrating but I'm trying to keep at it. XD;

I'll also start taking a German class in January! Looking forward to that.

Languages I'd like to make time to learn someday:
-Spanish (it's beautiful and comes incredibly easy to me) -Chinese (every time I meet someone from Taiwan they're AWESOME)
-Turkish (Turkey is fascinating and I find agglutinative languages pretty easy thanks to Japanese)
-Bahasa Indonesia (know nothing about the culture but the language is intriguing)
