Hello! I'm Stephen from Manchester. I'm a curious creature, my interests include languages, linguistics, science, philosophy, politics, history, literature and to a lesser extent maths and vexillology. I'm also a massive fan of Manchester United.

I'm currently studying French and Russian at the University of Bristol, before which I studied French, physics, maths and chemistry at college whilst studying Russian at home. Last academic year I lived in Toulouse, France after which I moved to Tyumen' in south-western Siberia. I'm now in my fourth and final year of my bachelor's degree and I hope to go on to do a master's in linguistics.

As well as French and Russian, I have taken Czech, Old Norse and Old and Middle French lessons at university and also enjoy learning (about) other languages. I have looked into many other languages to various degrees. Languages listed below are those that have a place in my "library":

French (Modern, Middle and Old), Russian, Czech, Portuguese, Old Norse, Latin (Classical and Vulgar), Ancient Greek, Spanish, Mandarin, Polish, Old Church Slavonic, Nāhuatl, Italian, Swedish, Esperanto, Occitan, Swahili, Cantonese, Icelandic, Sanskrit, Old English, Catalan, Quechua, Dutch, Esperanto, Welsh, German, Danish, Hawaiian, Cornish, Māori, Turkish, the Papuan languages of New Guinea, Hausa, Persian, Ancient Egyptian, Nepali and Norwegian.

The languages I am focusing on in my spare time at the moment are Swedish and Esperanto (as well as, to a lesser extent, Italian and Portuguese).
