मम जीवनम् वातायनेन दृश्यमानः (Sanskrit: Seeing My Life Through A Window)

My deep fascination with language derives itself from a desire to understand the inner workings and nuances of society and people. Everyday, I explore a new aspect of the human experience through learning about culture, history, as well as conflict-resolution through language learning. The enjoyment of this process lends itself to my most esteemed title: polyglot. However, I not only seek to learn and understand foreign languages, but also to understand their historical implications and how they’ve formed over millennia. Language surrounds and affects us in ways we couldn’t possibly comprehend, but I’m taking the first steps to understand those unbeknownst to us, but also to unravel the deeper meanings of things through my knowledge of semantics and pragmatics, as well as through cultural clarity and experience.

(Translation of Korean text: Secondly, it can be of great help to your foundation and experience, from associating with people, engaging in language learning communities, and even laying the foundation for linguistics. Reddit has been a special place to not only find advice and opinions in certain areas, but also to join communities where you learn your own answers or languages. Every minute, new features are added to the Internet to help people flesh out their opinions. For example, my blog. The ideas from my blog were created by constant requests from people looking for quality language materials. Of course, the amount of data is large, but the updated information and learning-friendly materials are all based on what I have made and experienced because of my personal goals.)
