My story is not unlike perhaps most polyglots in the world. I was born and raised in a multilingual &
multicultural environment, and grew up speaking four languages to which I was exposed, and in
which I was engaged, from birth: Dutch, Papiamento, English & Spanish. By the end of high
school, I was fluent and literate in these four languages. At the university level, I studied & learned
French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, and Greek (in that order) for
several years, while I majored in Speech-Language Pathology & Applied Linguistics. While at the
University, I had the opportunity to live and work at the University of Sofia, in Bulgaria, for one
summer. While there, I studied and learned enough Bulgarian to meet my basic communication
needs. A few years after graduation, I studied Tagalog, and lived with a Filipino family in the
Philippines, for one summer. Today, I speak 8 languages, w/ varying degrees of fluency, and work
full-time as a World Languages Teacher, Private Language Instructor, Interpreter & Translator.
