May I introduce myself?

Skylax omnibus salutem plurimam dicit.<br /><br />As you see, what matters in my case is the use of the English language. But it is an opportunity for me to train a little and for you to exercise skills in linguistic deciphering.<br /><br />As a former Greek and Latin teacher, I spend years teaching rudiments of both languages to French-speaking children in Liege, in the French-speaking part of Belgium. Now I'm retired, living in a green landscape where the Dutch come to spend their holidays.<br /><br />My only acquaintance with English is from reading aviation books and magazines. The foreign languages I've learned at school are German and Dutch. I can also (painfully) read Italian, Spanish and Russian.<br /><br />I've always loved the classical studies, for many reasons I could hardly explain in English. But first of all, I find it refreshing. A kind of sugar-free Coca-Cola.<br /><br />That's why I find Textkit a very interesting site.<br /><br />Curate etiam et etiam ut valeatis.<br />Fernand<br /><br />

Yes, it has, inasmuch it is still possible for an old guy who never learned English formally. :?
