I have had the hardest time keeping up with anything that has to do with Livejournal.  My only question is if you (the slightly extensive number of members on this comm.) would like for me to restart my efforts in this comm.?

I had more or less forgotten it existed (I generally forgot my personal Lj as well), I appologize.

Hi Panda


(no subject)

: Mikko,22
Home country: Singapore was where I was born in. But I moved to the States when I was 12, and then moved to Malaysia for 7 years, followed by University in England for 3 years. I just recently returned to Singapore.

Language you are fluent in: English, Chinese

Language you're interested in: Japanese

Knowledge if any, in language of interest: My father is Japanese. I go over to Japan pretty often, but can't converse with my relatives because of the communication barrier. My father used to talk to us in Japanese, so I know the basics, but he isn't really around much anymore (travels alot) so I can't practice. And I really want to learn the language so I could at least talk to my grandmother. I recently started taking lessons, but need someone to converse with.

About you: I am a graphic designer / scriptwriter / producer / copywriter. This is a crazy list because I initially got a diploma in moving images, and did the whole producer, scriptwriter thingamajig. Not my cup of tea. So I got a bachelors in design. Loving it. I also enjoy sewing, and am always volunteering to be a dresser at fashion shows. It helps that my best friend is a model. I am exceptionally talented in baking banana muffins and only banana muffins. I also play the piano. And am currently listening to Crystal Castles, Sohodolls, Le Tigre, Gregory and the hawk, Teenager, and Cocorosie. I am really pushing myself to say more about myself here. Basically, I am very enthusiastic about learning the Japanese language so I can go back to Japan and possibly acquire my masters there. This was so difficult to write!

Name: Jessica

Home country: Well I'm from Sweden, but I live in the USA.

Languages you are fluent in: I wouldn't say "fluent", but I know enough English, Swedish, Spanish and French to hold intelligent conversations.

Languages you're interested in: In order of preference: (Swedish,) French, Spanish, Italian, German

Knowledge if any, in language of interest: My family speaks Swedish, so I know a decent amount. Enough that I can definitely get my point across, but the grammar may or may not be lacking as I've never officially taken formal classes. Although when I travel to Sweden (for pleasure or to visit my family) most people assume I'm a native, and I've never had any communication issues... As for French, I've taken several years of courses. Same with Spanish. When it comes to Italian, I've only been studying for a year, so I don't know very much. And I've only recently started studying German, so I really don't know much at all.

About: Where to begin? I love The Phantom of the Opera. The stage-show and original novel, not the 2004 movie. The 1924 film with Lon Chaney is fine. I also love figure skating. I've been taking lessons since I was really young, probably around three. I also love horse-back riding. I ride English. Mostly Hunter/Jumper, but some Dressage as well. My family has owned horses ever since I was born, and I'm fairly positive that I could ride a horse before I learned to walk. I'm a vegetarian, so animals are really important to me. I also enjoy reading. I like to write as well, but it's not one of my better skills. I think I'd recommend reading my interests, since that covers this fairly well...

Email: SwedishSoprano at yahoo.com. Although if you don't message me ahead of time saying that you've sent an e-mail, please phrase the subject line in a way that I will know it isn't spam.

Edit on 12th November 2010: I tried to clarify my experience level, and switched the order of a few languages of interest.

Name: Katie
Age: 23
Home country: Germany
Language you are fluent in: German
Language you're interested in: English, French, Swedish
Knowledge if any, in language of interest:
1) I'm pretty good at English, it's the language I learned for the longest time and the language I love the most. Still, I'd like to get better and improve my grammar - usually I play it by ear...
2) I studied French for some years at school, then dropped it, and picked it up again at university. I was once really good and would love to get back to that level, I think right now I'm at a bad intermediate level
3) I just picked up Swedish, it's the language I'm (for now) least interested in because I can't even say more than what my name is. I'm working on it though :)
About you:
I love love love music, especially rock and pop music - I still love Backstreet Boys and am not ashamed about it :)
I love guitarists, but still haven't picked up the guitar myself - that's my goal for the upcoming university break.
I love movies, especially dance movies. Other than that I love reading, meeting my friends and traveling. Since I'm a poor student that's mostly looking at pictures for now, but I plan to do more traveling once I finished my studies next year. I absolutely look forward to it, I love meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds. 
Right now I'm doing a master's degree in business administration at a university in Germany and have another year of my studies left.
When I don't study I work at a newspaper agency in the marketing department.
I love music, pasta, summer and laughter
I hate winter, potato-soup and people who think too much of themselves

-English by far is my most perfected language.
-I've been taking French for 8 years and studied for a summer in Paris, but I still make a lot of mistakes.
-I speak (South American) Spanish fluently because of my heritage, but I have never taken a grammar class so I can say it's less that perfect.

-I've taught myself some German and would love to be able to speak more of it.
-I understand Italian very well since I speak a few romantic languages. I feel like I would pick it up easily if I tried.

I also wouldn't mind skyping to practice pronounciation and grammar.
