Hello. My name is Ben Ling, I'm an aspiring linguist, who is currently studying Thai and Mandarin Chinese. I intend to move onto Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese, in that order, and then to either go into Middle Eastern langues (Persian, Arabic, Hindi, etc.) or into European languages, (Spanish, French, German, etc.) My other hobbies also include cooking and sewing.

Currently, I'm using Benjawan Poomsan Becker's books on Thai to learn the language and culture of Thailand, and using YoyoChinese's online Chinese course to learn Mandarin Chinese. I'm still relatively new to both of these languages, so at this point I'm somewhat conversational in both of them, but barely. I know the Thai and Korean script, and some 300 to 400 Chinese characters.

I'm excited to begin this journal, and I hope to look back in the future on the linguistic journey I'm embarking on.
