I'm...what the heck did I call myself this time..oh...LaihanMagTulog! I'm a Filipino who's native language is actually Cebuano, not English. But dialects aren't exactly given the same priorities as Lingua francas. Don't worry, I'm alright in English though, I mean if Americans assume I come from one of their fifty states, that has got to mean something.
Anyway, I'm taking up English Language as my course, because I really do want to teach (in Japan or Korea, if I had it my way. Though any other part of the globe is fine with me~ I don't need much to be content anyway. Besides, I live in a town so i'm acquainted with the rural lifestyle as it is). Well teach and be a translator, but I figure I need to know the language i'm translating anyway. I mean, if I make the translation up on the spot, I'm pretty sure I'll be fired.
Still, I love to help people out, so if my skills in English can be of any use...
Now, I'm trying to strengthen my Japanese and Korean, since for the former, I know simple sentences but I'm horrible with writing hiragana/katakana and that I need to increase my vocabulary as well as making sure my sentence structures feel natural. For the latter, I forgot my hangul and know extremely little verbs. To be fair, my teacher, bless her heart, is a good person but she's extremely busy and so we only got enough. I don't think i'd survive a minute in Korea if I tried to speak korean.
Anyway, I have hobbies, but I'll write about them another time. Also, since I'm using an Ubuntu OS, I have no idea how to get hiragana or katakana on this thing so i'm forced to do my typing on google translate. So don't be surprised if they sound bad!
