Interview: Chloe (Taiwan)

Let's meet Chloe from Taiwan


Could you tell us about yourself, including the languages you know?

Born and bred in Taiwan, I consider my mother tongue to be Chinese. However, I started learning English since I was four, so English comes to a close second.  I have been learning Spanish for 7+ years, but I can’t write well, because I rarely write. I also learned French for 2 years, but it’s been on and off. I also tried out Vietnamese and Indonesian classes at school just for fun.
