I am a pilot. I love to travel and I am fascinated by people of different cultures. I grew up as a polyglot because I wanted to experience people in their native language; I think this shows respect. Yes, a lot of people speak English around the world and it's the de facto lingua franca, but it isn't quite the same thing; when you make an effort of (respect), people take notice. I never had the intention to become an author, but I wrote a few books which are useful―I think―to people interested in developing a decent vocabulary of another language, whether for business or leisure. I still read my books over and over again for proficiency; I hope they can be useful to you as well. Don't forget to get a passport and see the world with your own eyes; it's such a beautiful thing to meet people from around the world; besides, speaking another language it's one of the best tool to exercise your brain; try it!
