My Language Learning Journey
Beyond my native tongue Hindi, and English, I have obtained higher proficiency in French and Spanish.
Learning a new language was never my goal and interest until I studied my first foreign language – French – in college.
It was during this time that I found my love for languages. I also enrolled and completed all Spanish levels during my first job to keep up the zeal. That was 2008.
Since then, I have learned German, Italian, Japanese, and Korean to varying degrees on and off in the past.
Probably, I’ll continue in the future if I get enough time.
My Language Career
I have worked with nearly 20 organizations and had great success with my students. This includes middle school to college-age, non-traditional students, and employees in the corporate world.
I am currently a lecturer in two Indian Universities, engaged in corporate training, teaching at LanguageNext.
Occasionally, I mentor students, design curriculum, and career counseling with comprehensive experience in different programs, topics, age levels, and educational approaches.
Why did I start blogging?
This blog is something I wanted to start for a long time, but it took me forever to pull the trigger and actually do it. I created this blog mainly for three reasons.
First, learning a new language is my passion, and I love languages. In fact, this is the only thing I do. Being a linguist for more than a decade, It was a no-brainer that I’d start something language-related someday. Passion is what leads to sustainable writing. You’ll do best at the things you admire.
Second, today, there is a growing demand for foreign language professionals. Unfortunately, the information available is pretty limited, and most of them is inaccurate, incomplete, and irrelevant. I intended to inspire and help you find quality, helpful, and appropriate content.
It took me several years to research different languages. I’m addicted to research. I still don’t consider myself an expert, but I’m happy to help in any way I can. Hundreds of people continued to express interest in finding out more about languages.
Eventually, I decided to start a blog dedicated to helping people learn a new language. So studyfrenchspanish was born in 2017!
Every time I considered starting a blog, something came up. Eventually, I started though I don’t think I really understood what I was getting myself into. It was challenging work. What you read in 10 minutes sometimes takes 10 days to write.
In the end, the blog’s success keeps me motivated to write more and even better. After all, doing what you like and are passionate about is never about money.
My Blogging Experience
I have been associated with this field for nearly 15 years. I started studyfrenchspanish.com in 2017, languagenext.com in 2018, joyofkorean.com in 2021, and joyofchinese.com & joyofjapanese.com in 2022 to encourage everyone to learn different languages!
I’ve tried my best to assist you in pursuing language learning through storytelling, unique content, resources, updates, and many more.
This blog is an outlet to chronicle my language journey until today.
As a one-person founder with no investments, profits, or business partners, I manage every aspect of my websites. My professional career helped me maintain and take to the next stage, though that wasn’t a small and easy task.
Finally, with the increase of work, traffic, focus area, and technical kinds of stuff, I’ve taken a few professional freelancers’ services to take over some of my responsibility.
When I started two blogs, I had very few visitors but gradually grew to almost 3 million page views in 2021.
Many leading educational institutions and known organizations like News24, Cervantes.es, Duolingo, Femina, LanguageIndia, iTalki, Sejong Korean Institute – Inko Centre, Eurekly, UND (University of North Dakota), St. Joseph’s College, and many more have quoted or recommended my articles.
Many have also called me for interviews, debates, and viewpoints on different aspects of foreign languages.
