Intro by Theresa

Hello world! I'm Theresa and I'm more than happy to be a part of Talk With the World.

Being Singaporean, I'm constantly surrounded by people of a different ethnicity and I'm always interested in learning about my friends' languages and cultures (probably influenced by our country's national education, but I love languages all the same). As every Singaporean child is required to be bilingual (English being mandatory), I took Mandarin as a second language because it is my mothertongue (I'm Chinese).

I then took up Korean as a third language after my first trip to Korea in 2004 and gradually fell in love with the language and the rich culture of the country.

Anyway, I'll be putting up some of the stuffs I've learnt in Korean class as well as some of the Chinese proverbs, cultures, etc which I think are interesting. I'll also try to put up some pictures I take during traditional Chinese festivals such as Lunar New Year, weddings or Mid-Autumn festival to share with all of you about how we celebrate them!

Till next time then!
