Spanish and Communication Arts
In Palma de Mallorca, Spain, I have been an English teacher, management consultant, and manager of a ship agency.
Spanish was becoming more and more important in the USA when I was at the university and so I saw it as a language that would be useful in the future. I studied German because of my German ancestry.
Through Spanish, I have access to another culture and world of information. When on business or pleasure trips, I am more easily understood.
They were extremely difficult, as I had not taken language classes in high school. As I caught on, they became a lot of fun.
Study abroad marked a major change in my life as I came to live in Spain after graduation and have been here since then.
I have a near native level in Spanish and began using German at one of my jobs on a daily basis.
Do language interchanges with natives apart from classwork.
