About Danny Bate – you know, the one who tweets so much.
Born somewhere in rural Norfolk on a stormy* night**, this is the personal blog of Danny Bate, a linguist, language teacher and person uncomfortable writing in the third person.
I am currently living and working in the Czech Republic; while my job here is teaching languages, I also spend most of my spare time thinking, talking and writing about the wonders of human language.
I do feel I have a vocation: to use the scientific insights of linguistics to make languages easier to understand and learn. The aim of this blog is to have a space in which I can share this passion with all who are interested – without the character constraints of Twitter.
