About Me

Hey everyone! My name is Balint and I’m a nineteen-year-old university student living in the beautiful city of Bournemouth, along the South Coast of England. You may recognise me from I wish to be a polyglot!, a blog which I used to run until about two years ago.

For the rest of you, I’d better introduce myself. I was born in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, to Hungarian and Greek parents. I moved to England at the age of 12 and have been living here ever since – I’m now in my second year at university! I’ve had a passion for languages and cultures since a very young age, and my dream is to become fluent in a number of foreign languages.

Just to clarify, I’m not special or incredibly talented, I struggle with languages just as much as anyone else would. But what I do have is a positive attitude, and a keen interest in everything to do with languages and linguistics! I grew up speaking Hungarian, with a bit of Greek on occasion. I soon found myself learning English and Hebrew at school, both of which I loved from day one. After moving to England, I was introduced to a bit of German, and then came French. A lot of French. I later ended up immersing myself into some Esperanto, Italian, Elefen, Polish and now Catalan. Want to know why? Watch this space!
