~Where does 'strawblondie' come from?

It's a play on 'strawberry blonde'- my hair colour!

~How did you learn Japanese/Korean/Chinese?

I put in a lot of time and a lot of effort, and I've still got a long way to go! Unfortunately there's no quick way to learn a language. I've written more in depth posts about language learning on my blog as well as lists of resources I've used over the years so be sure to give it a read!

~Have you ever taken classes?

For Japanese and Chinese, yes. I haven't for Korean but I'm always on the lookout for lessons in my area!

~How can I learn Japanese/Korean/Chinese/X language?

Please check my blog for posts on starting a new language and language learning tips!

~Which language should I learn?

Sorry but I can't answer that for you! There are a lot of different factors you can consider, which varies depending on the individual.

~What's the easiest/hardest language to learn?

This really depends on your native language and the languages you already know. But I will say that Chinese is not as hard as people make it out to be!

~What textbooks would you recommend for Japanese/Korean/Chinese? 

You can check the resources pages under the 'about' section for a selection of my favourites, or you can check my Amazon storefront for a wider range of books I'd recommend and have used myself! Also be sure to check my store for a range of printable resources for all three languages.
