About me

I am a polyglot and a linguist.

Besides being an expert of my mother tongue Mandarin Chinese, I am a proficient English learner as well as a certified TEFL teacher.

In addition, I speak rather fluent French and Portuguese;intermediate leveled Spanish,Italian;upper amateur leveled German,Catalan,and Galician;beginner level of Arabic,Japanese,Korean,and Russian.

Apart from those existing languages, I can read a few classical languages proficiently including: Latin and Classical Chinese (from the pre-Qin era to Late Qing era). With some minor helps, I can read some Old English (text of Beowulf to Chaucer), Old and Middle French (Chanson de Roland, Lais de Marie de France), and Old Spanish (Cantar de Mio Cid).

I've completed my comparative study of the fundamental phonology, morphology, grammar, and etymology of these two language families: Germanic languages (the northern branch: Danish, Norwegian(Bokmål), Swedish) and Slavic languages (the western branch Czech and Polish, the southern branch: Serbo-Croation, the eastern branch Russian). I am currently studying the six Turkic languages and six Celtic languages through the same method.
