I started learning English in school at the age of 7. Thanks to my wonderful teacher that inspired a passion in me for this language, after 4 years I joined an intensive English class which lasted for another 4 years. I have then continued my studies in high school for another 4 years and also attended an English literature class at the Faculty of Philosophy (where a lot of the books and reading materials were in English). I have lived in England for 5 years which definitely improved my language skills and was good practice. I used to offer private English lessons to Romanian children and I also did several translation jobs for a Romanian website.
