About Me

Stats:

Born in 1986 in Washington, DC and I currently live in Hamburg, Germany.  I have a degree in French, but I’m not really using it.  I am a freelance English trainer.

I love:

Languages & linguistics. Coffee. Friends – old and new. Reading. Travel. Chocolate. Shiny things. MIKA. Corny jokes. Teaching. Art and collages. Taking pictures. Blogging. My awesome boyfriend.

Life Goals:

1.  One day, I’d like to be married and have kids of my own.  Start my own family.  And my kids should be at least bilingual.

2.  Travel as much as possible.  See the world.  Experience all that the earth has to offer.

3.  Become fluent in as many languages as possible.

4.  Enjoy every minute, because life is short.

Welcome, Mohammedisa – all the way from India!

Karl – oui, j’y suis allée une fois mais juste pendant quelques heures pour un marché de Noël. Ah oui, j’ajouterai Aix à mon liste ! Maintenant que j’ai commencé mon travail à GBCS, je n’ai pas autant de temps libre. Mais, si tu es libre ce jeudi vers 14h30, je serai chez Panera à Bowie jusqu’à 16h. (J’y vais toujours entre mon cours de français et mon cours particulier.)

Bonjour Sarah…

De commentaires en billets, de billets en blogs, me voilà sur le vôtre. Etant moi-même linguiste de formation, je ne peux qu’applaudir votre choix du français comme langue de prédilection.

But, hey, you surely didn’t pick the easiest one. Good luck with all the subltelties of Molière’s language ! ;)

Have a great day !

Merci beaucoup, pluc! Vous avez raison, ce n’est pas tout à fait facile comme langue, mais c’est l’une des plus belles.

Je suis curieuse…. Parlez-vous d’autres langues que le français et l’anglais ?

Oui … j’ai fait des études de traducteur-interprète, et mes langues de travail étaient l’anglais et l’italien. Comme j’ai une profession qui requiert beaucoup de contacts commerciaux en Belgique (pays trilingue) j’ai dû, par la force des choses, me mettre au néérlandais. Et puis, il ya une dizaine d’années, j’avais une copine espagnole, j’ai donc appris quelques rudiments de la langue de Cervantes … ;)

Hi, Sarah – your story about the luggage and the person spitting made me laugh! I’m glad you weren’t injured, in either case. Thanks for the photo you sent today, too. You didn’t include Guatemala on your list of places visited, or the Bahamas! I am going to enjoy your blog a la (sorry, don’t know how to do the accents on my computer) Julie and Julia! Hugs!

hey Sarah! I just read a few of your blogs really quick – the McDo automated ordering system, and the French cursing! (And you have to teach British English BLERG!) I’m glad to be keeping in contact with you, even if it is through the interwebs! vermisse dich :)
