Hola language learners! My name is Isobel and I’m writing to you with my recommendations for language learning; I am fluent in 5 langauges (Spanish (native), Italian, English, French and Portuguese) so I think I should be able to help budding translators, teachers or even just those of you wanting to make the most of your holidays. I lived in the Canary Islands when I was little – a fantastic place to grow up! The Canary Islands attract many tourists each year and it was mixing with people from abroad that fired my curiosity – I wanted to speak how they spoke! So I checked out Tenerife and planned my escape. I first went to London; after hearing so much about this wonderfully cosmopolitan city and thinking speaking English was a great way into business, I decided to make my stay 2 years; I loved every minute! I took the examen Cambridge which was a reward for my success – it now means finding teaching jobs is so much easier (a great way to fund travels abroad) and I feel proud to have something to show for my 2 English years. That is my advice to language learners – get certified. Employment options increase almost immediately and you differentiate yourself from those who put “English language speaker” on their cv but can only really speak the basics. For similar reasons to learn English (its utility in industry), I am now off on a sprachaufenthalte im ausland to learn German – I’ll let you know how it goes!
