Subject: Auxilingua Project
Hi my name is Aida Ojala I live in Vandalia OH, but my family is originally from Michigan. I've been learning about Auxilinguas for a while now. I studied French and Spanish in H.S. and I can understand Interlingua almost perfectly. I'm still having a hard time without using noun / adj. agreement :) But I like it. I also like Novial because of it's beautiful sounding name and Ido because it seems to solve the accents in Esperanto which sounds very mechanical to me. I'm putting together a webpage on Auxilinguas and I'd like to put a link to your page. I would like to have access to the member site here's my information to be a member. Thank you. Aida Ojala
Languages: Ido, Interlingua, Novial
Reason: I enjoy learning languages and learning about other cultures. I think Auxilinguas are a good way to be able to talk to other people and they take a lot less time to learn than langauges in different countries, like French, German, Spanish.
Background: I found out about Interlingua from my French teacher who told me if I liked French and Spanish I'd like this simple language and she was right. I then started using the web to find out more and learned about other Auxilinguas. I wish I could take a college class on Interlingua, it should be offered in schools I think because it would help kids learn the international words first then worry about grammar later on.
