Meet our newest recruits

Our team not only travels a lot and understands the importance of learning languages, we enjoy it as well! Want to know more?

You know that we are an international company and as such change frequently. This may seem sad as people come and go very easily. However, without this aspect of our company we would never meet new people from all over the world, gain experience and without doubt make friendships. After all what could be better than travelling wherever you want and not paying for accommodation!

Want to know more about the newest Easy Languages team members....read on.

French, English and Italian.

Travelling across Australia

Why did you choose Easy Languages?
I have experience with language holidays as I have been on some myself, which I enjoyed a lot. I think that speaking lots of different languages is very important, so its a great thing to be promoting these kinds of programmes. At the office I also get the opportunity to speak lots of different languages so that makes things interesting as well!

Which languages can you speak?
I can speak Italian, French, English and Spanish. I can understand some Dutch but not very well :)

Which language would you still like to learn and why?
I would like to learn Dutch as it is one of Belgium's official languages. In my opinion it is important to be able to speak all of a country's languages.

What would be your ideal holiday?
My favourite type of holidays are adventure holidays. I like visiting new, unfamiliar cities, explore new areas, try extreme sports, find amazing landscapes. Renting a motorbike, crossing the country and trying new food would be great :)

What has been our best experience abroad?
My best experience was when I went to Ecuador to learn Spanish and work on a volunteer programme. I spent three months there and was able to discover an incredible country. There are wonderful beaches, mountains (La cordillera de los Andes) and rainforest (Amazonia) all in the same country!! If people like sustainable tourism and want to take part in a project they should definitely go to Ecuador!!!!

Conclusion: travel often, no matter who with. All of us here at Easy Languages understand the importance of language learning in today's international world, but more importantly we love it and this is what we try and convey to our students. Contact us!
