My name is Evan. I’m a writer, a reader, a talker, a teacher. I teach English. I speak Spanish and French. I can communicate in American Sign Language and Portuguese. I struggle with Japanese. I am pretty useless with Korean. I can fake a little bit of German. I’m told I’ve been talking since before I knew how to talk. When I had to take French in school, I hated it as much as I hated all my classes, but later in life I found that talking feels good. Communication makes life better. Once I started to get by in French, someone spoke to me in Spanish. So I became a beginner again. Then I moved to Japan, and so on…
Time I’ve spent in Montréal, Paris, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Berlin, Istanbul, Korea and Toronto has kept me in constant contact with people who speak languages other than my own. I want to speak, read, write and sign them all. This is my modest start.
Questions about English?* Maybe I can help you; I’ve taught it for years.
Any help you can give me to improve my usage and understanding of your language will be greatly appreciated.
If English is not a challenge for you (or if you enjoy the challenge), please read my other blog, Good Evaning, which is about all kinds of things which you might find entertaining or upsetting, or maybe both. http://goodevaning.wordpress.com
