Teach, Learn, Share

I'm really interested in language acquisition. I once used TPR for a year to learn Chinese. TPR is really different from traditional language teaching methods, in that grammar is not taught explicitly. Instead, it emphasises natural language acquisition, along with real-world movements and actions. Would be happy to share this method with other people!

As a software engineer, I spend most of my time writing Haskell (a functional programming language). It's quite rare to meet anyone else that also writes Haskell, so definitely would be very happy to learn and share this. :)
