Dear Kalmyk comrades!
I'm an aspiring author and I want to practice writing about various topics in several languages. If you happen to be Hungarian, Manchu, Kalmyk, Okinawan, Russian, Prussian, or Deaf Japanese, I'd highly appreciate it if you'd be willing to assist me in improving my skill in your languages as I'm learning them and wish to write in them (or improve in general, regarding JSL). If you can speak one of these languages, I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd help me in learning them (there are also many other languages I'm interested in, check the bottom of my profile for more information).
If you help me, then I'll be sure to find a way to return the favor (I could write you a poem or essay, help you with English or Japanese, help you with stories or essays related to history, etc.).
Genres I specialize in:
Poems: Death/goth, topics related to languages/nations I like, personal experiences, language topics, hatred, Kikokushijo-related issues, history, tradition, isolation, suicide
My username is a mixture of my 5 favorite countries/regions: Saitama (my birthplace and homeland), Michigan (my best years, the home of most of my friends, and where I mastered English), Hungary (favorite country), Manchuria (my second favorite country/nation), and Kalmykia (third favorite country/nation).
One of my dreams is to become a successful author/poet. Which is why I joined this site so I could practice my writing and write original fiction. My other dream careers are to be a historian, a linguist, and a movie director. For this reason I also write essays that deal with history and languages and I may also write a play or an epic story eventually.
The only other info I'll give is that I've lived in the USA (Michigan and Indiana) for 11 years and therefore I'm familiar with American culture and I'm a Kikokushijo. Since I'd like to practice my Hungarian, I'll be more than willing to review stories and poems written in Hungarian. I've been learning Hungarian for six years and passed the A2 level of the ECL Hungarian exam so it's the best language I speak besides Japanese and English. Unfortunately, my Hungarian has been declining recently due to a lack of use and because I can't find Hungarians in Japan to practice with. In recent times, my Russian skills have been improving since I've been taking classes in both university and private. My abilities in Manchu and Kalmyk are also improving gradually due to practice and writing poetry in Kalmyk. My ability in Okinawan, Prussian, and JSL are all dismally low and for the most part virtually non-existent apart from pronunciation, a few phrases, being able to understand some words, being able to introduce myself, and being able to read and write to an extent (although I do seriously intend to improve my skills).
Hungarian introduction/Magyarul bemutatkozás:
Mindenkinek, sziasztok! 19 éves japán diák vagyok. Amerikaban 11 éven laktam keresztül 1999-től 2010-ig. Magyarországot nagyon szeretem és azért 2009-től tanulok magyar és tavalyi augusztuszben átmentem az ECL magyar vizsga (szint A2). De utóbbi időben nem beszélek jó magyar hogy nem gyakran használok magyart ezért magyarok japánban nagyon ritkán és akkor, most magyarom nagyon rossz. Hogy, gyakorlat szeretnék magyarul és fiatal magyarokkal akarok kommunikálni szeretnék. Hobbim történelem, sakk, nyelvizsga, és költészet. Írok versek magyarul és akarok írok történetek és esszék magyarul. Nagyon örvendek!
