When a  🇧🇪

whose mother tongue is  🇳🇱

and who’s married to an  🇮🇹

writes about languages in  🇬🇧

while living in  🇪🇸

This November I am going to write 200 words in Danish E.V.E.R.Y. day.

I just realised after having written my first text that 200 words is actually a lot. I don’t know if I have enough interesting things in my head to write every single day 200 words but I am going to try.

I think it is very difficult to pinpoint the exact moment when I fell in love with languages as it is something that has grown very slowly.

A very important moment was for sure when my secondary school organised an exchange with a school from Tricarico, Italy. After two weeks in Tricarico, I was already able to speak some basic 🇮🇹. Immersion really helps to pick up a language.

More importantly…

How did this new adventure of mine start?

How did I end up teaching 500 lessons to almost 100 different students in less than 3 months?

I am an introvert. No, I award myself the title Mr. Introvert’83. I have no idea how some people don’t start sweating when they meet new people. I start sweating when I know there is a POSSIBILITY, I MIGHT have to meet someone new sometime in the future.
