I'm a friendly and open-minded person but I rarely met new people in the past. However, I usually move to other places because of my job, so now, I often meet new people. I very love it since it's so interesting and wonderful. When I meet new people, I can make friends with them and learn a lot of new things about the place where they live such as customs, costumes, food, drink, and traditional festivals.

My best subjects are French and English. It’s really interesting to me to study smth new about language, to learn new constructions, to learn by heart poems and prose, to answer different questions in different languages, to learn speak fluently, to discuss different problems. My dream is speak English like a native speaker.

Not so often. I do not like meeting new people, I am kind of an introvert.
