Wow what an honour to get this. I must thank thinkingpaco at http://thinking-languages.com/ for this great honour. I have only been writing my blog for a couple of months and have only 141 followers, so I’m delighted to accept it.
Here are the answers to the questions you asked me.
- – How many languages do you speak?
I speak only one language – English, but can make simple pleasantries in Arabic, Somali, Maori and Bahasa.
2.- What language would you like to learn and why?
I’d love to learn Somali and be fluent in it, but there aren’t any courses here where I am. I’d like to learn Somali because I am married to a Somali and also we have two schools in Somalia as well as in Malaysia, and I have been to Somalia four times. I am constantly surrounded by the language I just wish I could understand and speak more. Also Arabic would be handy for my job
3.- Say a word that reminds you of “happiness”.
4.- What scared you when you were a child?
Clowns. To me they were creepy liars! They would have a smile painted on their face but were always frowning or crying.
5.- Are you happy?
6.- Why do you blog?
I have a passion for my job as a teacher and love to help people.
7.- What’s your relation with music?
I love music, all kinds but don’t listen as much as I would like these days. When I was younger I could play the piano and sing.
8.- Apart from your wonderful blogging, what other abilities have you got?
Some musical abilities, (as above!), I’m a good manager (I think, maybe my staff may disagree!…) I have a great sense of humour, I’m a risk taker and I never want to stop pushing myself forward to try new things and have new adventures.
9.- If you were King / Queen of the world, what would you do first?
Ummmmm……(scratching my head)…..A King or Queen can only do so much, but if I had a magic wand, I would get rid of all corruption, and let everyone have the same opportunities to work hard and get what they deserve.
10.- Who or what has taught you the most in life?
The older I get the more I realize the impact my mother had on me. She was truly a rock and a saint who ruled totally by natural instinct. Thanks Mum!
