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 about to start my master's degree in linguistics at the University of Manchester before which I studied French and Russian at the University of Bristol for my bachelor's. For my A-levels I took French, physics, maths and chemistry. On my year abroad (September 2013-July 2014) I lived in Toulouse, France and Tyumen' in south-western Siberia.

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, Norwegian and Afrikaans.

When I get the time to do proper work on them, my current languages of choice are Swedish, Esperanto, Dutch, Afrikaans, Portuguese and Turkish (which I have now taken up at university) (as well as Azeri and Turkmen in tandem with Turkish).
