Hey everyone, my name is Amy, and I'm twenty-two years old. I am definitely a glossophile, particularly when it comes to Middle Eastern languages, and, even more specifically, Farsi. I started taking Farsi when I was sixteen and a junior in high school, but then I had to transfer schools and I took a year off, so I only just got to continue this past year. Thus far, I have taken six semester (three years) of Persian.
I go to Hampshire College, which is a small school in Amherst, Massachusetts. All majors are self-designed, but I am essentially majoring in Middle Eastern Studies with a concentration in Persian Studies. I would love to study abroad for a semester if possible, but I cannot go to Iran and I'm a little afraid of going to Afghanistan right now, so I will most likely go to Tajikistan. I would like to spend the semester at the Tajikistan State University of Law, Business, & Politics, which is located in the city of Khujand in Sughd.
In addition to Farsi, I took Ancient Greek for three years and Latin for one year. There are so many languages I would like to learn in the future, including Turkish, Kurdish, Pashto, Arabic, French, Czech, Slovak, Polish, Gaelic (Irish), Welsh, Russian, and Urdu. I only wish I had the time to learn all of those languages. For now, my priority is Persian, but then I will focus on Arabic. This is because I would like to go to Morocco or possibly Jordan in the Peace Corps when I graduate, and so I will need to know Arabic. I also will just generally need to know Arabic if I'm going to study the Middle East.
I tutor in English, among other subjects. If you're interested in learning English and your fluency level is high beginner or above, then please check out my courses or contact me.
