‘Language is your soul and your music. Communicating with others is one of the most important basic human needs. When you decide to learn a foreign language, you make a sort of pact with yourself. You simply can’t learn a language in a week—it’s something you have to keep at. You need perseverance. That’s what I want people to realise. As a trainer, I am a guide. I also really enjoy talking about things that matter to my students.’
