Anna Acquasaliente

Native Country: Italy
Languages: Italian, Venetian, English, Japanese, Norwegian
Role: COO, Community Manager & Design

I am an enthusiast polyglot and linguist, I’ve been living in Japan from 2017 to 2020, and I have been teaching English and Italian for the past 3 years. I’m currently working on learning Norwegian, but I keep a side interest in Korean, Mandarin and French. When learning a language, I love to dive into not only the country’s modern culture, but also the history of it. At the same time, I’m a videogame lover and a Twitch nerd, and I use these regularly for learning. I would be happy to share my tricks and techniques with you! Let’s explore languages together!

Brooke Savoy

Native Country: Canada
Languages: English, Korean, French

Leader of: Korean

(she/they) Graduate Student, Polyglot

 

Hello! I'm Brooke, a 25 year old graduate student studying Sustainabity Science in Sweden. I grew up in Canada but have also live in the United States and South Korea. Connecting to people and learning about different cultures drew me towards learning languages and now it's one of my favourite things to do. My degree program keeps me busy so I'm only focusing on Korean and French at the moment (with a little bit of Swedish), but I would also love to learn Spanish, Italian, and Mandarin. Outside of languages I also love science, history, music, and dancing!
