My love for languages ties in closely with the way that I picked up English. My first leap into the world of English stemmed from a deep curiosity for discovering the world, literature and my mother’s decision to move with her 10-month-old toddler to the great land down under. The first 7 years of my childhood were spent in the many gateways of the world and THIS is what made me fall in love with not only English but foreign languages as a whole. I can’t think of any other place than airports where you come into contact with every form of language, custom, emotion, culture humanly possible in one single place. From that point on, my kids “playground” was a blend of Latvian folk tales and hot Australian summers. Australia’s multiculturalism opened up a world which I probably never would have.
