At home in French

I started learning French from a native French teacher at the age of 7, and as a result I am very comfortable with all aspects of the language, in particular comprehension. Throughout my education I have received high grades in French, and translation has always been one of the highest of my grades.

Skilled in German

I started learning German at the age of 12 and have always loved the language. I had a long correspondence with my German penpal and visited her in Germany on several occasions. I spent nine months living and studying in Germany during my degree, becoming fully immersed in the culture and language. I passed the Diploma in Translation in this language combination (German to English), demonstrating my skill in this pair.
