I’m currently focusing on Hungarian, ASL, and Hebrew. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to respond to everyone, so I try to find people with similar interests, language level and goals.

My learning goals

Maintaining my stronger languages and getting my questions answered as well as having basic conversations in my newer languages. I want to learn about your culture and work best with those that understand their language’s grammar, despite being a native.
