Introduction to my blog

An introduction / explanation to my blog;

Welcome and thank you for visiting my blog!
On this blog I will share the experience I gain from studying different languages and cultures.
As for my self, I grew up with my father who is partly Chinese and partly Malay. As he truly loves the Chinese culture and food, he taught me a lot about his culture as I lived together with him for over six years. In times when my father was very busy I had a lot of hobbies to keep myself entertained. One of them was learning languages. I started learning Japanese a couple years a go when I wanted to use my spare time to learn something useful. Since my father rather wanted me to learn Chinese I studied Japanese in silence. A few years ago I got an amazing opportunity to work in a 5-Star Japanese hotel for half a year. Of course I had an amazing time there and my Japanese skills were put to the test. I perfected things in my pronunciation and got to practice a lot.
In the same area there is a Korean school, which was of course too interesting to stay away from. I studied Korean on the side for half a year as well and got a fairly good introduction into the language.
Now my head is full of Asian languages (and some Western I learned on the way as well) I'm really interested in learning the similarities but also the contradictions between several languages.

On this blog I can give you some tips and share some of my experiences while I'm on my Journey. I hope you enjoy reading it.
