Hello! My name is Tom, and I have a bachelor's degree in English from UC Berkeley. I have a passion for languages. I learned Spanish in an academic setting (high school and college) for about eight years before going abroad to live in Chile and Colombia for a total of about ten months. I am very fluent in Spanish and, due to having taken such an extensive amount of formal classes, I understand the ins and outs of the academic side of Spanish as well. I have taken a year of Portuguese classes at the University level and I have also taken French classes and lived in Paris, France for four months!
