I’m Sara Maria
and I’m a linguist. In my case, that means I devote my time to studying how language works (both in structure, and in the brain).
Studying linguistics helped me to move past my initial struggles with learning a foreign language. It took me ten years to learn my first foreign language! But now I can now speak (at varying levels of proficiency): Spanish, French, Mandarin, Korean, American Sign Language, Nicaraguan Sign Language, and Indonesian.
I am currently studying Mongolian, Turkish, Cantonese, and Malay.
I hope this blog helps inspire you to pick up a language or two!
