Introduction for MarkRobotArm

I'm a former military oxymoron and current apprentice polymath. I'm actually back at school, trying to become a teacher, but a tendency towards the silly means I'll play around with the definition, as above. I'm something of an oenophile - giving it a fancy name makes my love of wine a hobby, right? - as well as being a lover of language(s). I speak and write four - English, French, Spanish, Arabic - with a view to studying Mandarin as soon as I have a window. Or my brain mutates. Whichever is sooner. I am a keen cook and am rarely happier than when making something new for close friends and family. I love spicy foods and make Indian curries, as well as appropriate side dishes, from scratch. It's hard to match wines to such complex flavours so, on these occasions, will try to find a beer to complement the meal. If in doubt, a Guinness will usually suffice.

Welcome to Persona Paper, Mark. My daughter also loves learning new languages. Can you tell me any free online resources for learning Spanish other than Duolingo?

Welcome to PersonaPaper Mark. I just left you a message on Tsu too since you didn't know your account here has been approved. I'm wondering if they just don't send out a notice and one has to check? Or if you missed the email. Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading your first post when you get around to it.

Welcome to Persona Paper. I'm not much of a wine drinker but I do like a decent beer.
