Hello, bonjour, hola, konnichi wa, dobry den, salaam aleekum.......!
I'm Karen and I'm the new Sheffield admin.
I'm going to be organising a Polyglot evening here in Sheffield very soon - hopefully beginning in March. I'll let you know the evening and venue as soon as possible.
To tell you a little about me, I'm a mature part-time student at the University of Sheffield, and have almost finished my degree in French. I also have A-level Spanish and the odd word (and I mean the odd word!) in Russian, German and Italian.
I found Polyglot last year on my year abroad in Paris, where I went to meetings for a few months. I found it to be a fantastic way of practising my language skills, making friends and learning about new cultures. I hope to bring a little of what I enjoyed there back to my home town.
I really hope that Polyglot will be a success here as it is around the world. Keep an eye on this site for details of our weekly meeting and I look forward to meeting lots of you soon!
