Hiya! I'm Ellie, a transgender girl from the UK. I started Japanese in my late teens, and that quickly blossomed into a general passion for foreign language and culture. I welcome all friend requests! Though my profile lists the languages I currently study and use most actively, I have an almost endless list of languages I would like to learn and countries I would like to visit, so I am quite happy to offer my native English in exchange for almost any language, and to meet and chat to people irrespective of their ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. Please feel free to say hello regardless of where you might be from!
