About me

INFO

- Mathias Karlsen - 21 - male - Norway

Well, I speak Norwegian and English fluently enough. I have been learning German through the school for 5 years now. Spanish is a new interest of mine.

I'm really interested in South American culture, and I'd love to learn more Spanish. I'm going for a Rioplatense Spanish, so I'll probably include yeísmo and voseo in my texts when it's appropriate.

My German is ... I don't know! Nobody has really said anything critical about it. I got an acceptable grade this semester, so I guess that's a good thing! I know how to conduct an understandable conversation and express my opinion. My grammar and vocabulary I don't really know, but I am always learning something new! :)

My hobbies are mostly music related. I listen to A LOT of music, and I am in a student radio show talking about music in my hometown. Let's just say I have a very varied taste when it comes to music. I also play guitar and bass.

Languages are also time consuming hobbies of mine, I just like the fact that communication evolved from grunting and pointing to advanced language systems. It's weird, but languages just fascinate me!

Other than that, I like being with friends, trivial facts, pondering about questions that are way to complex for me to get to the bottom of, humor, having discussions, sleep, people, geography, anthropology, social anthropology, football etc.

If I were to say one thing that is negative about me, I would say that I'm too informal some times. I tend to speak my mind in situations that don't call for it. I guess people just want the truth if it's positive. I don't mean to say that I'm not positive, but I'm a positive realist!

Lastly, I would like helping people with their Norwegian. So if you have problems, just ask me! :)
