Hej allihop!

My name is Samantha, I'm from the US.

I joined this site to improve my Swedish. I've been studying for 9 years but my grammar is awful. I hope to find some native speakers who can help me improve my grammar.

I'm also studying Turkish when I need a break from Swedish. I'd also like to find people to help me, but unfortunately my Turkish isn't good enough to translate.

I also took 7 years of French in high school/college but I just haven't retained it. Confused smile

Nice to meet all of you, and look forward to working with you!

I just love proofreading French translations, so if you don't mind being flooded by nitpicking comments, just say the word ;).

I do appreciate constructive criticism but my French isn't anywhere good enough to do a translation in it. Sad smile I haven't spoken or written a single word of French in like 4 years

LT does not require professional level. Whatever your knowledge of the language, you can post a translation for educational purpose and ask for proofreading to improve it, as long as you do the job yourself (i.e. no prettified GT output).

Writing proper French is sure no piece of cake (even for natives!), but reading it is less difficult. If you feel like trying a French->English translation, it's always an option.

Thank you! It would have to be something really easy. Any recommendations?

Oh, thank you, Fantasy. I've thought about learning Persian, because it seems like a cool language but learning the Arabic script is hard for me Sad smile

You could start with translating children songs, many of them are short and easy...

Also we have this section here:

Most of the songs are in English though but they are mostly short and you can try and translate them into the languages you are studying...
