Study Language in London!

I never knew I could become addicted to anything. Frankly, I don't smoke, I rarely drink and, of course I have never tried drugs. Everything started when I travelled to the UK to a language school in London. I learned so quickly that I couldn't believe the pleasure that practicing what I had studied gave me, doing my homework and talking to people in English. After about a year I felt very confident and, without quitting my English course, I started to learn Japanese in the UK. It was kind of weird but I couldn't afford to take a course in Tokyo. Nonetheless, my teacher was brilliant. I took a job as a waiter and managed to earn enough for living costs and paying for my studies. I took advantage when I met Japanese tourists to have basic conversation. They were always patient and were generally honoured by my efforts. They even took some photos of me with their flashy modern cameras sometimes.

I spent three days a week at school between my English and Japanese classes. I was used to studying more than fifty hours a week in my country. I usually went to the library and almost lived there for more than six years; so three days a week wasn't big deal to me. Then I decided to start some French classes in London. I was the best client of that school as I had finally become a "linguaholic". I was now almost a language expert. So one day the school's headmistress called me up and offered me a job teaching Spanish. I sat and thought: me giving Spanish classes in London? Why not? And that's how I became a teacher. Sometimes I miss my friends from the pub. But I definitely enjoy being involved in language classes more than doing the dishes.
