What is the best way to learn English?
The best way to learn English is, in my opinion, to spend time in an English speaking country and then speak with as many people you can as often as possible. Don’t revert to your native language during your stay if you can avoid it.
When you were younger, what did you want to be?
A teacher! I knew I wanted to teach from around the age of eight and I’ve always been interested in languages. So now I’m living my dream.
What is your favourite word?
My favourite word is nineteen because it is an age when you have gone through adolescence and now have the whole of your life before you – you can do anything you want, anything is possible.
