Book Collection

Apart from playing guitar, another hobby what I have is collecting foreign-language books. Does it sound interesting? I have 11 languages so far, besides English, Chinese, and Indonesian. I got some of the books by exchanging with friends and some are free. I am glad to have kind friends that helped me in collecting books. I am certainly looking forward to more books.

Playing Around with Languages

Studying in the international program has let me experience the feeling of being in an international society, where students come from more than 60 countries around the world. The international program benefits me a lot in terms of language. I have learned that some countries in northern Africa have Arabic or French as the official language, there are 11 official languages in South Africa, and Afrikaans is similar to Dutch as Swazi to Zulu or Xhosa. I have also learned that people in Haiti speak Haitian Creole, which is similar to French as well as learning about Pidgins, Creole, languages of countries in the Pacific Ocean, and many more things that are interesting.
