Terje Lingaas's Full Profile
Although I know verb conjugation is important, I have trouble forcing myself to sit down and memorize tables of information. I often find myself reading the same page over and over again because my mind drifts off after just a few sentences. But communication is never boring, and that is how I like to learn. I believe that if you have something you want to communicate to another human being then you WILL find a way to do so. Finding something interesting to talk about, something you want to say to someone, will motivate you to learn the words necessary to do so. I focus on goals for learning and try to make them real. Everyone has different reasons to want to learn. It could be talking to foreign girls while on vacation or preparing to start a job in a foreign country, I believe that if you find your motivation and adapt the lessons to this then the learning will just happen naturally.
I am born and raised Norwegian and I am currently working as a translator for software and video games in Canada. I am fluent in English and Norwegian and intermediate in French and Spanish. I also have a basic knowledge of Italian and Portuguese, so should you speak any of these languages you could use it in addition to English if you have trouble saying something in English.
