Personal Learning Summary

I am a native English speaker living in Spain and I have also lived in Japan. So, I know what it is like to live, work and study in a foreign language. Now I can communicate effectively in Spanish but I struggled with learning languages at school (French & German) due to poor teaching methods and, honestly, ineffective study habits. Learning a language IS possible but it takes time and effort. I have plenty of experience as both a student and a teacher and I am here to help you.
