I am passionate about language-learning, in particular English and French as foreign languages. There are vast amounts of research that prove the beneficial effects of learning a second language: from reducing dementia later in life, to enabling the brain to work better in younger life. On top of that learning a foreign language helps us to empathise with other nationalities and cultures, which can’t be a bad thing!
My love of language stems from a family holiday to France when I was 8 years old. I was fascinated by these children, who were just like me, but who were speaking this other, strange, language. I wanted to communicate with them, I wanted to buy our bread from the boulangerie, order our food, I wanted to speak French!
