About me

✿✿✿ Hello! ✿✿✿

My name is Karolina, I'm 23 and I live in Warsaw, the capital city of Poland. I'm a university student of applied linguistics, majoring in English and Japanese language & literature. I also work as a freelance translator and sometimes as a foreign language teacher.

Apart from English and Japanese I can also speak German and have studied some Swedish, French, Italian and Greek in the past. The list of languages I'm interested in is never-ending, so I'd be really happy if you could write something in your native tongue (preferably along with its English translation :D) on the back side of the postcard. Other than that I'd love to hear about you - your hobbies, interests, quirks, best travel memories, favourite books/movies, the place you live in etc.

Apart from languages I also love doing martial arts, yoga, skiing (being active in general), traveling, watching movies & TV series, cooking, painting and reading.

✉ Specific language requests ✉

[UK] Please write something in your local dialect! A sentence, an expression or even a single word would be awesome.

[DE/AT/CH] Schreib mir bitte auf Deutsch! Ich habe Deutsch für lange Zeit nicht benutzt, aber würde mir sehr gerne erinnern.

[JP] 日本語で書いてください!私は日本語がまだそんなに上手ではないけど、やさしいテキストを分かるのは問題ではない。さらに、あなたの出身地に関する何か面白いことについて喜んで読みたい!ありがとうございます。 ^^

Postcards

Of course, I appreciate every card I get, but I have a special interest in these themes:

✿ cats ✿ dogs ✿ penguins ✿ sheep ✿ sealife ✿ cute animals in general ✿ space, moon, stars ✿ Salem, witchcraft ✿ USA national park ✿ sea, ocean ✿ rain, snow, mountains ✿ skiing ✿ martial arts ✿ sports ✿ coffee, tea, hot chocolate ✿ food, recipes ✿ groceries, supermarket (ad cards are ok) ✿ Christmas market (Weihnachtsmarkt) ✿ illustrated maps ✿ books, libraries, newspapers ✿ British culture ✿ Harry Potter ✿ Pink Panther ✿ music ✿ k-pop ✿ Gotochi ✿ anime ✿ Studio Ghibli ✿ sea ✿ Japanese literature ✿ Japanese art (especially ukiyo-e) ✿ art in general

Comment: Hallo Karolina, danke für die Postkarte! Dein Deutsch ist ja anscheinend nicht schlecht. A pity that the postcard was late (stamped 31.Jan.2017, a week after the end of the swap and two weeks after it was marked sent, arrived 4.Feb.2017).
Response: Hey! I'm glad the postcard finally made it to you. I'm so sorry for the delay. I put my outgoing mail in my bag and was to send it on the last day of the swap, but I totally forgot about it and realized a week later. My mistake.
