Hello there! My name is Marvin, I am twenty-odd years old and live in Germany. There are numerous reasons for me creating this website and its contents: firstly, I am very interested in the Ancient Egyptian language and languages in general; I have even made my own languages before and continue to do so to this day. Therefore, I thought it would be a great idea to have my website be about said language with resources for reading and learning; this way, it will (hopefully) be easier for people trying to study this fascinating language to find helpful resources and to practice their reading and comprehension skills.
All of this is, however, just a hobby for me and I have never officially studied Egyptology or Egyptian itself at a university or at any other institution; instead, I have learnt all the languages I know (with the exception of English) on my own. I am currently completing my apprenticeship as an IT systems technician (IT-Systemelektroniker) at a company in Bielefeld.
Personally, one of the main things I spend my time on in my free-time is learning more about languages and, at present, I am focussing primarily on that of Ancient Egypt. I know a variety of scripts and have learnt a large number of languages over the course of my life; I have not, however, learnt enough of these languages to have an actual conversation and thus, the only languages I can actually "speak" are German, English and Swedish. I also enjoy travelling very much, even though I have not visited that many countries or places yet because of lack of money.
Besides the language and travelling stuff, I also enjoy trying out new types of coffee, tea, wine, whisky (true whisky is spelt without an 'e'!) and beer which is often accompanied by me reading a book or just listening to music (Klaus Schulze, Neuronium, Tangerine Dream, Эдуард Артемьев, 冨田 勲 and so on…)
