What about me ?[hanova | hanova ny fango]
I am a Malagasy national, aged 26. I'm currently a software engineer who absolutely loves Python. I live in Paris, thousands of kilometres away from my ancestral lands.
- How many years on Wikipedia?
I first heard about Wikipedia in 2005 and I've been writing on Wikipedia since 2008, when the Internet got available a few steps away from my living room.
- How many languages spoken?
Theoretically, six. In practice, four.
Malagasy is my mother tongue. In Madagascar I was always schooled in French-speaking schools and then moved to France when I was 10. From age 10 to 15, I have never written anything serious in Malagasy. At age 15, my written proficiency in Malagasy was catastrophic. But it's healed, now. Thanks God.
I'm highly proficient in French since I live in France, but I don't consider it as a second language as I've learnt it at school. I'm also proficient in English, though I've never spend more than 10 days in an English-speaking country. I listen to and read English daily through radio podcasts and news articles. I'm less proficient in Spanish. But I can still understand most of it.
My knowledge of Esperanto is purely coincidental as I was developing Kriollatino, a language that bizarrely sounds like a mix of Italian and a heavily modded Esperanto.. As of my knowledge of Japanese and Chinese, they are minimal and not even enough to understand a simple text.
