I'm a graduate student studying art in the US - I'm sick of only knowing the world through English and want to expand my learning. I'm studying French because of significant French influence in games and animation, in which I hope to work someday.
I am an MFA student studying to be a character artist for film and games! I've never had the chance to learn a new language well before, and I am sick of being only monolingual in English.
Just as in art I would not be content to be stuck with any one medium, I want to learn to see the world through new languages and cultures as well. I have just started to study French because I think it a beautiful language and also because there is significant French influence in film, animation, and games, making it useful for my career.
I am a complete beginner, but as I learn I would be happy to help out French speakers learning English in return for helping me learn French :)
