About me

Capture writing ideas! They are like birds that sit on a branch outside your window for a short time, and then fly away. A small "idea birds" notebook and a pen can be helpful.

I'm a native speaker of English living in Texas. I'm studying Russian and some Italian! Additionally, I practice French, "la langue de Molière", in a local conversation group, I am close to fluent in Spanish, and besides French, I study Portuguese (Lang-8 / text chat). I have studied Russian with lessons on Babbel.com and Duolingo. I also took the Add1 Challenge (#22) in Modern Greek from Jan.-Apr. The goal in general was to be able to have a 15-minute conversation with a native speaker after 90 days.

All my entries include English translations. I often use expressions in the English-language versions which may be interesting to you.

My other interest is Les Mills classes (the worldwide exercise series which originated in New Zealand). I love taking BodyPump and BodyCombat!

Please feel free to request my help with English, and to share resources regarding any of the above languages.

Finally, would you like to participate in the free 30-Day Speaking Challenge with me and others? Please see http://hugginsinternational.com/30dayspeakingchallenge/ for details. You can sign up anytime during the first week of a given month to participate.
