Languages in my life

I started learning English at the age of 10. Up until then I remember watching films on TV and trying to imitate the sounds I heard. I also complained when mum took me to French movies. That was not for me… Nevertheless, I started French at 12. By 15 I added German to my CV and once at University I tried Dutch which led me to a year in Dutch speaking Belgium where I improved it a lot. While in Brussels I had a job interview in Spanish and was praised by the interviewer for my abilities. Never had lessons though. After some time living in Brazil I came back to Portugal and did a 3- year course in Italian.

And that is it.

Ah, I have been teaching English for the past 20 years.
