I come from Britain.

I live in Taiwan.

My name is Simon Peter Hughes, please call me Simon. I'm one of the admins on The Judaism Wiki and on eight other wikis too.

I'm from England. I was born in 1973 in Stratford-upon-Avon, the hometown of William Shakespeare. I studied French and Spanish at university and then gained an MA in English language teaching. I have taught English as a foreign language since 1997, I have lived and worked in Turkey, Poland, Japan and Taiwan. I have been living in Taiwan and teaching English to children since 2003.

I edit several other wikis including Wikipedia under the same username. I have edited articles in languages other than English and, through Wikipedia's multilanguage versions I have discovered that I can read Ladino without much difficulty.

I used to edit Uncyclopedia under the username Spews1973 but I lost interest in that site because I found most of it to be disgusting and just not funny

My favourite book is The Joys of Yiddish by Leo Rosten. Now that's funny!.
