I love to speak to other people, to learn about their culture, to appreciate our sameness and our differences. I am fluent in English, French and Spanish, and fairly good in Italian. I am working on German and Polish now.

I keep my computer language programs on my phone as well as on my desktop and my laptop. Whenever I have down time, I can review a lesson or correct someone else's work.
