About Me

I work as a sub-editor at a firm that specializes in translating foreign-language texts into English.  It’s useful for me to know how to speak various languages so that if I come across a translation that doesn’t sound quite right, I can refer to the source text.

I’m lucky enough to live in Sydney, Australia.

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog and following along. Your method of learning languages sounds interesting, may have to put it into practice if I visit India one day (or some other non-English speaking country). Thanks for sharing your knowledge with others. 🙂

    If you have a spare 5 minutes, I’d like to encourage you to read the following article on my site:

    Take care and God bless.

  2. Hello Naomi!
    I look forward to really diving into your blog. Also, thank you for following my blog at Faith1st Ministries. I hope it has and will continue to be a major blessing in your life. May God richly bless you as you continue to write and blog. Please continue with us on this journey and remember to have Faith 1st because the “just shall live by his faith.” — Sebastian

  3. Thanks for the follow of my blog Wolf Is My Soul. Although my main interest concerns animals, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by your blog about learning languages. I only speak and write English as my second language, I live in Sweden so swedish is my native language. Looking forward to exploring your blog.

    Namaste, Carina

  4. Hello,

    Thanks for following my blog- I’m not sure how excited you’ll be by my not so interesting stories but I’ll certainly give keeping you entertained a go!

    I have been wanting to learn a new language for years and always make excuses so maybe this is the way forward for me? I’ll have to keep you posted!




    1. Hi, Kate. Your blog is fantastic! You’re a very talented writer and you’re very honest – and that to me equals entertainment. I too appreciate a good cup of tea. I’m keen to find out how your swimming lessons are going. And which language would you like to learn?
      Cheers, Ziggy

      1. Oh thank you! Well I always try my best to be honest. It’s the best policy! Haha, I’m glad you picked up on the tea thing (pf course I have one in my hand right now!) I would actually like to learn quite a few. I really want to learn Japanese (I know a very very very small amount) but I was going to leave that for when i’ve mastered a way of learning easily. I was going to attempt Spanish/ French first.
