Bonjour tout le monde !
Shameless life-long learner, born teacher. I hate to brag, and I won't because I don't have to.
This site looks like a great tool to observe academic trends and commonly accepted idiomatic expressions in this ever-changing bastard child of a language. I speak a pretty common middle American English with some influences from the South, and I am also fluent in Continental and Québécois French.
Foreign languages and linguistics are my passion (B.A. McGill 2008), and I have a heavy background in Latin (caveat emptor) as well as working competencies in Italian, Spanish, and German.
While teaching is my vocation, I am working on my M.Ed and have a delightful background in a variety of customer service posts. These Emmy-winning jobs give me a great sampling of language usages, and I am eager to share and learn.
I also enjoy long walks on the beach and foreign films.
