I am Tekre (Na'vi for skull, and yes, I actually use that name with some people in real life too :D),
I am a 22 year old linguistics student who currently lives in the
Netherlands, but originally I am from Germany, so please forgive me all the
English mistakes this website has for sure!
As a child, I had no interest at all in languages. According to my teachers I was
unable to learn them and should stop doing it after my graduation, and English and French class made me think I hate
learning new languages. I was proven wrong when I got very bored one day and
googled the Na'vi language from James Cameron's movie Avatar, joined the
community and started learning it. Three years later I quit my former studies to
move to the Netherlands and study linguistics, while also studying Dutch,
Italian and Chinese. A while ago I also started teaching the Na'vi language,
which turned out to be the most fulfilling hobby I ever had. I hope to be a
researcher and also a teacher at a university one day.
Besides languages, I love video games, reading books and from time to time I draw
or paint a bit. Since I started studying business informatics before I started
with linguistics, I also program some useless stuff from time to time.
