I am multilingual knowing Persian, English, Arabic and Kurdish; in my home all these languages are spoken on daily bases.

Academy for me came in English in higher levels of education. The first step was to get acquainted with English culture through their Literature. This was a turning for me point as ever since, the fascination with this aspect of language has followed my through. Then I tried a different phase and went down the road of theoretical studies. I picked TEFL to get a more practical insight as a teacher.

Career and money making  has always come pretty serious. I have been a teacher for more than 6 years now. But as I am a multidimensional person travel industry is the other major career rout that I took in order to quench my thirst for experiencing language and cultural difference on tangible basis.
