Interests

I love translating and etymology.
Russian is my current fascination, what I'm studying. I listened to a lot of icelandic songs, so I kinda learned to like and dig icelandic, altough I know only maybe 20 words. I love french, I like that it's not that hard to pronounce the words, it feels like it's in my reach to be able to utter french words correctly, although I only know a handful of phrases, I stopped studying french for russian.
I admire arabic, it would be really great to learn and speak it (I can still hear that guy from "Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden" saying something like "karojul di kaf - if one man in a cave" and "heninacombina" what was maybe "oil refinery".) I've heard it from a speaker of arabic and hebrew that those two languages are pretty similar, so if you learn one, then with a little added effort you can learn the other one too.
I want to learn japanese one day, it's just cool, and has a beautiful tempo, I like how they speed it up sometimes and then slow down, articulating words like they are shitting a brick. Regular smile When a language has a different alphabet it makes it even more interesting.
I've studied german in elementary school and high school but didn't appreciate it back then, now I thinks it's cool, charming and fun.
And don't forget english, I don't think this one gets the appreciation it deserves. It's beautiful, powerful and all around great.
Don't judge it by reading me, I'm just a humble student. Regular smile
It's a popular notion in Hungary that english is an empty, technical, rigid language, but I think those who claim that, don't really know what they are talking about. It can be beautiful, it can sound beautiful and I'm sure that it brings with itself a different way of thinking too. English even has some words (roadkill, papercut, landlocked etc.) that hungarian has no equivalent for.
I love my mother tongue of course, it's like a big organic thing, with some areas barely governed by any easily comprehensible law, that could help a prospective learner.
Lomb Kató a famous hungarian interpreter once said that she had a student who gave up on hungarian when he was supposed to differentiate between:

örült (he/she was happy for something)

őrült (crazy) and

őrölt (powdered).

Okay, enough ramble. I'm envious to all of you who speak more languages then me (2).
I'm especially envious to those, who learn like 4 languages as kids because their environment propagates it.
(Like when an icelandic kid has an icelandic mother and an italian father, he learns icelandic, italian and later english at school and danish (I heard it's taught in kindergarten).

About me

Languages are like a mysticism that can be made real.
