Favorite Quote:

Since the age of two
Languages have been my life
I’m a polyglot.

French and Spanish are
What I am most fluent in
Other than English.

I am not as skilled
In speaking German, but I
Am learning it still.

The same applies to
Japanese, Italian, and
Korean as well.

It began with French
Learned it from kindergarten
To the seventh grade.

Next year, I transferred
To MSA in eighth grade.
I took Spanish I.

I’d already known
How to speak Spanish quite well
Señora knows that.

Now I’m in tenth grade
Taking Spanish III, and I
Just love it so much.

Next year I hope that
In eleventh grade I can
Still take Spanish IV.

I speak French the best
It is my second language
Spanish is my third.

That’s about it for
My haiku compilation
Au revoir. Adiós.

A series of haiku telling of my passion for foreign languages that stemmed from a very early age.
