Non-Mathematical Interests

I’m fascinated by linguistics and the history of language. I also love learning languages. I speak / am studying:
> English (Natively)
> Modern Hebrew (Fluently)
> Spanish (Proficient)
> Catalan (Proficient)
> French (Conversational, but rusty)
> Yiddish (Intermediate, in progress)
> Mandarin (HSK3+, in progress)
> Russian (Elementary, and rusty)
I also have experience reading old Jewish languages, like Biblical Hebrew and Judeo-Aramaic.
