Hallo! My name is Shane and I'm an 18 year old student living in Chicago, Illinois. I'm a native English speaker and trying to learn German and Russian. I would love some foreign friends, so throw me a request!

Hallo! My name is Shane and I'm an 18 year old student living in Chicago, Illinois. I'm a native English speaker and I kinda have an obsession with linguistics. I study Environmental Science, but I'm also self-teaching German (a slow and tedious process).
I'm fascinated and infatuated by Germany and German culture. Anything from Oktoberfest, to the Berlin underground, the scientific community, or German films and novels, you can find me completely engrossed. I'm also starting on the basics of Russian, as I am also intrigued by the language and culture.
Other than my genuine love interest in the German language, I'll find it useful for my career path into the field of science. I've gone through so much effort thus far - getting involved in language blogs, buying CD courses, translating songs, books and movies - becoming fluent is my dream. Also becoming fluent, or at least being able to converse with natives in Russian, is a goal of mine. I guess that's why I'm here.
Throw me a friend request! I would love to have some German and Russian speaking friends! (I also took Chinese in high school, which I'm slightly better at than German.)
