My name is Kevin Post and this is my blog regarding improvements of my language skills and bridging gaps trans-globally. I am a student currently utilizing travel and living abroad as my classroom. My dream is to study languages in the places in which they are spoken across the globe while crossing great plains, summiting mountain tops and setting up multipitch rock-climbs in some of the world’s most remote places. I am from Orlando, Florida of the United States but currently reside in Medellín, Antioquia Colombia with my wife Tomasa del Carmen.

I speak Colombian Spanish fluently and the current language I am focusing on is Turkish (Türkçe). Kurdish (Kurmancî), Persian (Farsi & Dari) and Esperanto are languages I greatly look forward to studying to fluency after I complete my goal of fluent Turkish. If I am to achieve fluency in the languages above there will definitely be more that will follow. I love languages not because I love studying grammatical rules or linguistics necessarily but because I love people and languages allow for me to be able to bridge gaps and change the world through communication and dialogue.

Years from now I eventually see myself one day becoming a wilderness emergency medical technician and retiring on a farm in the Western Andes of Colombia. What will I do with the language skills I obtain? I have no idea, my goals are to just enjoy the journey, study what makes me happy and gives me a life full of more exciting opportunities.

  1. As I plan to take the CELTA in Saigon this winter, I was hoping follow along with your blog here, but…

    I can find no RSS feed button anywhere on the site. Am I somehow missing it? Please advise.

  2. Hey Dyanne, I will have a RSS feed button up soon. Thanks for pointing it out, I hope that you’ll find some of my advice helpful! Best of luck to you.

  3. If you want, you can practice your Turkish with me 🙂
