Because I haven't done one yet

Hi, thought I should put a little something on here as I haven't done so yet.

Hi, I'm Greg, native English but I have a smattering of French and German. I'm currently trying to learn Spanish.

I learn mainly by repetition and lots of corrections, practicing the words that I know by trying to put them together in sentences and working on the actual grammar separately. 

I have an interest in words themselves as we adopt them from other languages and adapt them for our own purpose, but even words that change over time e.g. terrifiterrific has the same root as terrifying, but mean the opposite in modern usage.

Heh, I haven't used it in years, I could tell you how to ask basic questions, the weather, and stuff like that, but I would probably point at Aaron https://languagetools.io/profile/131 if you wanted to learn more useful things
