Coming from an Italian immigrant background, I’m fully aware of the difficulties associated with learning a foreign language.
I remember starting school as a 5-year-old in England and being the only child who couldn’t speak English. I cried so much, my poor mother often had to collect me from school because the teacher didn’t know how to stop me crying! Thankfully, I soon settled down, made friends and started learning.
When I came to Austria, I had to learn another language and those early memories came flooding back. I remember my tongue feeling too big for my mouth whenever I tried to speak German, the pronunciation of new words and sentences was so difficult! Today my tongue feels normal when I speak German and I can do my daily business and communicate with confidence.
As a language learner, I learnt to appreciate the importance of having tailor-made courses with a trainer who concentrated on my goals. As the founder and CEO of Focus Languages, this knowledge and experience gave me what I needed to make sure our courses suit our clients perfectly!
