Hey, welcome back :keke:

What was your username on GTF? A few people might remember you.

And what are you studying? :)

Thanks :keke: ! Can't believe it's been practically a decade already! Seems a lot quieter than before though.

I've completely forgotten, I was racking my brains trying to remember it because I wanted to use the same one. I can remember the 'famous' usernames but I can't remember my own...

And what are you studying? :)

It is, sadly! There are still quite a few people who visit regularly, though, including several from way back. Maybe you remember poolerboy0077, Marmaduke, Egregious (Derek) or FirePhantom (Brenden)?

Could it have been... Chase? Or SweetDreams?

Nice, which ones in particular?

Although I live in Scotland, my native language is Dutch, so I speak that and English (and I work as a translator, mainly translating documents from Dutch to English). I've been trying to learn some French, German and Spanish. I've given up on ever being able to speak anything but the most broken French or German, but Spanish seems more doable and is actually kind of fun.

Having said that, reading German is also quite fun and relatively easy, since most of it is just misspelt Dutch. :D

Welcome (back) to the forum(s)!

How many languages do you know?

Where are you favourite places to be outdoors? We (René and I) used to live near Sheffield, so I spent a lot of time in the Peak District.

I don't think so...

French and Spanish are my main ones but I'm a bit of a serial language starter, I've dabbled in quite a few others to varying degrees of fluency.

Oh, I'm a huge fan of the Peaks, spent a lot of time there! The Yorkshire Coast's great as well, I love being by the sea!
