Who am I and what is this site?
My name is Louis Fortier and I am a grad student from Montreal. I am currently developing this website in order to make my knowledge, my projects and experiences available to a broader audience. Being a graduate student in German studies, I care a lot about developing useful tools for future students while making them flexible enough to be used for other languages as well. With the omnipresence of the internet nowadays, I believe it is essential to see the online "world" as a new learning platform.
Aside from German and language learning activities, a good part of my free time is devoted to music and audio recording. Having played various sorts of guitars for more than 15 years, music is not only a passion; it is also a language. I have been tinkering with audio recording since 2006 and have been recording, editing and mixing music and interviews ever since. There is always a way to get better at what we do, and that's what has been keeping me busy since the day I held my first guitar.
Being a language student gives you the chance to travel, so you will also find pictures and stories of my trips here. If you have questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to contact me at louis[at]louisfortier.ca
