A romantic at heart…

…but only when it comes to languages 😉

I have given up on my futile attempt to learn German for the moment. I was in Patrycja’s class for several weeks, but still cannot seem to make heads or tails of that language. I love sharing my office with Elena, from Italy, and our new trainee, Bartira, from Brazil. Listening to their phone conversations or reading their lesson plans, I am pleasantly amused to find that I understand a surprising amount of both written and spoken Italian and Portuguese, even though I have never actually studied a word of either language. Our little corner of the language institute is constantly becoming more and more international, and while I may have many frustrations with my job, my co-workers continue to make it enjoyable to be here everyday.
