My philosophy to language and learning in a nutshell, how do you feel about it? 🙂
I am a native British speaker but moved to the Czech Republic about 9 years ago.
I have two beautiful, wild, curiosity filled, and pure energy fulled children, who keep me on my toes and off LOL, I have a twin sister who is embarking on the journey of motherhood for the third time, (one of us had to win the ' who -has- the- most- children game' 😉 ). And I have one older brother who resides in beautiful, sunny, albeit somewhat dysfunctional France.( but ViVa la french cheese, Mňamka!). My dad is a retired art lectora and a mild bohemian at heart :), and my mum is a retired special needs teacher, who still teaches.
Come on, we all know that teachers never really go into retirement ;). I live in a house in a little village with my family which includes our dog, a big soft gentle white swiss shepherd called... Nanook, apparently it's a type of ice-cream, (but, sshh, we haven't told him for fear he might lick himself to death).
