I then learned English spending my summers in Northern California for a decade. Graduated from University with a degree in Translation and Interpretation and a Master degree in European Law. A decade ago, I started my career in the international education industry and still very happy to be able to do what I love most: give people the opportunity to learn a language, explore the world and hopefully make it a better place!
