Hello! My name is Jaclyn. I grew up in New Jersey, USA in a suburban town about one hour outside of New York City. You can say I am an ABC (American Born Chinese). I am a native English speaker with a neutral American accent and I wish I didn't lose my Cantonese speaking skills, but that's something you can practice asking me about if we match.
I understand what it's like to learn a new language. I spent my entire 2012 in South America with my first month and a half attending an intensive Spanish language school that had a conversational component where I applied all the vocabulary and grammar that I learned. Afterwards, I pretty much travelled around the continent practicing what I learned with the mindset to only communicate in Spanish even if it wasn't perfect. Coupled with my listening skills, where I was continually analyzing how natives communicate (every country has their own slang!), I eventually developed full confidence when native speakers began complimenting me.
I've also lived with individuals from different countries and cultures. They spoke English, but if they communicated badly, they asked me to correct them. It was the same for me as I lived with a native Spanish speaker. The intention of the correction was to improve our current conversation skills.
