Hey guys! If someone's already done something like this, apologies, I'm pretty new on here and haven't checked too much out yet. 

So yeah what's a fun fact about you? 

For me my fun fact is I've lived in 4 different countries!

    I'm a train spotting and rail enthusiast, I send me an pic of an train in the UK and I could probably tell you what class it is, 
    Love is love and everyone is accepting and can share their issues with no judge from me and I try to help

    - I took my english igcse in yr9 and maths gcse early in yr11, cuz my parents wanted me to get them out if the way so I can focus properly on other subjects later onwards (I've gotta say i occasionally agree that they know best)
    - I'm a baby immigrant, I was born in the far eastern and then came here at a year old 😁

    I know a lot about dog breeds. Did you know Poodles were bred for water retrieving and corgis were breed for herding cattle

    These are all amazing fun facts and show the unique individuals we all are, I love it! 

    Davcr0ck that's a very fun fact, my grandad is the same with planes and it facinates me that he can identify a model when it's flying overhead! I imagine you're the same with trains when they're passing. Very incredible. 

    Sozforhappy that's pretty cool and I can imagine not too many people managed that. I graduated high school with a Canadian diploma but was only doing mainly national 4s in 4th year. I'm not 100% sure of the equivalents but that's definitely great and I didn't know you could do that! Also that's definitely a fun fact, I love it! Definitely a story behind that fun fact :) 

    Kathleen0172 so glad you came across this post! I'm Scottish too (well I was actually born in England, there's another fun fact) but I grew up in Scotland my whole life. Have you ever gone back to visit Shetland? I've never been but heard it's absolutely stunning! And Christmas lights are the absolute best! 

    L100 I wish I knew a lot about dog breeds! I've got 3 spaniels and they're all crazy nutjobs. I know a little about their breeds but not too much about other dogs. 

    I hope more people join in with this, I love reading about everyone's fun facts!

    I can speak 9 languages and sign 2.

    I can speak English, French, Spanish, German, Polish, Chinese, Hungarian, Italian and Portugese. I can sign Makaton and British Sign Language.

    Maybe I should be an interpreter when I grow up. If anyone needs someone to talk to but can't type in English then feel free to message me.

    English can always carry on but I wanted to let the French, Spanish, German, Polish, Chinese, Hungarian, Italian and Portugese know that they have someone to message.

    I started learning Spanish when I was 3, Polish when I was 6, French when I was 7, Chinese when I was 10, Portuguese when I was 11, Hungarian when I was 11, German when I was 12 and Italian when I was 12. Quite impressive isn't it? 

    I have done Makaton since I was a baby because I had a speech delay- I didn't speak until I was 4. The reason I started learning Spanish before I could talk was because I watched TV in the villa (they call the hotel rooms villas instead of hotel rooms.) I have done British Sign Language since I was 11 because I started watching Childline videos in the Deaf Zone of the website although my hearing is fine (it isn't like there are any rules about hearing people looking at it.) 

    In the future I hope to learn Ukrainian, Turkish, Swedish, Russian, Romanian, Persian, Norwegian, Mongolian, Lithuanian, Latin, Japanese, Irish, Indonesian, Icelandic, Hindi, Hebrew, Hawaiin, Greek, Georgian, Finnish, Filipino, Estonian, Dutch, Danish, Croatian, Bulgarian, Bosnian, Armenian, Arabic, American Sign Language, Albanian and Afrikaans. If Iearn all of those languages I would be able to speak 40 languages and sign 3 which would just be absolutely awesome as I would be able to communicate with many many people. 

    Did you know that Mandarin Chinese is the most spoken language in the world. 1.1 billion people can speak this language.
    I'm still standing better than I ever did. Looking like a true survivor. Feeling like a little kid. And I'm still standing after all this time. Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind.  I'm still standing. Yeah yeah yeah. The threats you made were supposed to cut me down.

    Awhh I'm sorry you couldn't speak until that age, that must have been very difficult especially when starting school. Still it did give you advantage on learning those many languages, you'd have no problem visiting or even living in other countries and fitting in ;). My uncle is a bilingual translator too if you're maybe considering that

    At least when I went to nursery the staff were already trained in doing Makaton. I also went to speech and language therapy either once or twice a week (I forgot.) That sounds amazing that he is a bilingual translator. Can you ask him what the job is like please?

    I haven't gone back to Shetland, sadly. I intend to one day though - we moved when I was only around 2-3, but I have very vague memories. It was a lovely place :) Extremely windy though, but I love that, lol.

    It's so fun hearing this stuff about you all. :tongue:

    Quote any line from a modern Doctor Who episode and I can probably tell you the episode title and the rest of the dialogue for that scene. I'm also a bit of a Halo lore buff. Basically just a nerd.

    Kasa2103 that's absolutely amazing and honestly you have a very admirable passion for languages. I wish I was like that! I learned a little french in primary school and a little Spanish in high school. My family and I went to Spain and I ended up having the chance to use Spanish when the person in the cafe couldn't speak English. I was able to ask for a table and order our food. Was an incredible experience and definitely wowed the man! 

    Kathleen0172 you definitely should get back, I'd love to visit one day too! I've been wanting to go back to my place of birth for years so I totally understand the desire! 

    Mike I love Dr who too! I'm also a big Torchwood fan (have watched every episode from a young age). I'm also friendly with John Barrowman and Gareth David Lloyd (Into Jones). When I was younger, I was known as Gareth's body guard and when I was with him people gave us space. He even took me on stage with the whole Torchwood crew in front of one of the hub events. Was amazing. I visited him after about 8 years of not being able to see him and he remembered me well. After events he'd make sure to come and see us etc. Very nice guy and amazing experience for me!

    Fun fact about me is I can lose my mum in Tesco really easily 😂 

    Joking that’s not the fact but it’s true - Umm I can sign the chours to reach for the stars and I used to work with SEN children and will be starting that again soon 
    You have a purpose.
  • Anch0r33Anch0r33 Posts: 17 Fast Newbie
    Shaunie that's definitely not boring and makes you different, in a good way! Everyone has their own little twirks that make them their own and you're no different. I'm really thankful to have you here! 

    Millie2787 omg me too 😂 I can just look away for two secs and she's upstairs 🤦 that's so cool, I can sign the alphabet but would love to learn more, including songs! Anyone who works with children has a good heart so thank you for doing that!
