一个捷克语古谚说“co novy jazyk, to novy clovek”。学习一种新语言,并得到一个新的灵魂。

There’s a Czech proverb saying co novy jazyk, to novy clovek, meaning “learn a new language and get a new soul”.

I’ve always had an interest for languages. Throughout the years I’ve familiarized myself with 15 and I constantly pick up small things from different ones, like the tones of Vietnamese, the click sounds in Xhosa or the Russian alphabet. Since I’m going to China next spring I will not continue studying Chinese at Dalarna University, but I have applied for both Russian and Arabic.
