Hello, my name is Josh and I'm studying Russian. I am a native English speaker, but I also have a lot of experience in French (although, since high school it's been progressively getting worse. I am a writer, programmer, and an aspiring Polyglot (multilingual person). I would be glad to help someone learn English or French. I want to learn Italian too, but my mother is going to be my learning partner for that. I'm am so excited about this language odyssey. I'm going to start college soon, but I'm sure I'll have enough time on my hands to dedicate it to languages. I'd rather communicate by email though (maybe MP3 attachments?) It's too early to say that though. I checked out three books (one Italian; two Russian). I hope I can balance these into my schedule.
