My exchange partner isTo err is human, to forgive divine. I am hoping I find a person who's aware of our innate imperfection and difference. If the world spoke the exact same one langauge, we wouldn't enjoy learning languages as we do now, would we?
My learning goalsEruditation is surely a thing that I appreciate, I would like to raise proficiancy. Yet I'd be euphorically happy if I can contribute to making the world a better place and my contention is we need to be exposed to various cultures to make a difference
