About Me

I am a young Singaporean who hopes to speak 7 languages fluently by 2017.  Ideally, 10 by 2022.

Today, I speak English, Mandarin + Cantonese, and German fluently.

I am learning Spanish as my fourth language and am at intermediate proficiency, and I understand some other dialects of Chinese such as Hokkien.  I also know Turkish, Korean and Japanese at the tourist level.

In the future, I hope to become fluent in Turkish, French, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian and Malay.

I learn languages for three reasons: to talk to my friends better, to make new friends more easily, and to understand the world from more perspectives besides my own.

In this blog, I will share tidbits on how to learn the languages I know more easily.

Here is my other blog where I write about ideas and perspectives (‘what’s and ‘why’s).  You can know more about what’s on my mind there.  I hope to post 100,000 ideas there eventually.
