Hello! My name's Alan. I'm from northern Iraq, studying engineering. As you may know, region I'm living in isn't exactly stable, so I decided I wanna start learning as much as I can just in case something happens, since I've always been a bit paranoid (according to the people that know me).

I know some things about a lot of things, I speak 3 languages, currently learning 2 more, and I can pretty much cook anything (except baking croissants, those are hard as hell to make).

I'm open-minded, not racist and I don't discriminate in any way, whatever preconceived notions you may have, you can toss'em out the window with me. You can ask me anything you'd like anytime, and I'll do my best to answer. I'm a nice guy (when I have my tea in the morning) and I've been looking to get involved in a forum for a while, and since many of my friends here don't really have the same mentality, I've decided to come here and join you guys. I've learned english on my own when I was 13 and I've been speaking it ever since, I love the language and I'm an avid reader, as well.

Thank you!
I agree with that, there's a lot of stuff on the media these days that's just pure speculation. Speculation in times like this leads to disaster!!

Thank you very much!! Trust me when I say it wasn't easy! I've had many sleepless nights learning english, 7th grade was critical, no less than 2 hours every night, I learned the old school way, reading a book and writing down all the words I didn't know and then looking through a dictionary (mostly using a little oil lamp because we didn't have any power for extended periods of time), also, it was a biology textbook (crazy, right?).
First word I learned from that book was "focus". Which is kinda funny, in retrospect.
