I'm an engineer and PhD student from Brazil. I like space sciences, but I also study languages for hobby (the first one was Esperanto). I have a superficial knowledge about many of them, but I never had the chance to develop fluency, because I don't know people to practice.

I lurked here for many years, and even posted here before for a short time. But then the board crashed, and I think my posts were erased. So I thought I should introduce myself again.

Besides asking (and maybe helping with) occasional questions, I would like to try and chat in Latin. I hope we have a great time!

Welcome, Jairo! You'll fit right in here. I'm sure there are plenty who would be happy to chat with you in Latin (and it's always easy to find those who want to correspond in Latin).
