German Phililogist, interested in Middle Eastern languages. I have learned:
Arabic (Modern Standard) Azerbaijani/Turkish Farsi/Persian/Dari/Tajik Turkmen Uzbek
I have learned these languages in a very passiv (lets say 'boring') manner. I know the grammar well and can understand written texts. But I can't understand it spoken or even speak myself. You can benefit from my philogical background as well. I am NOT a professional German teacher but still more able to explain grammar then a usual native speaker. We can use English as an intermediate language.
