✿✿✿ 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。 ^^
