Adam
I am Adam and I originally come from Czech Republic, small but adorable country in the heart of Europe. I started to learn languages in kindergarten and since then I am big language enthusiast. Besides my native language, which is Czech, I can also speak Spanish, German, English and partly Chinese. However, I am also in the process of mastering Russian. It took me lots of time to manage each of the languages mentioned, therefore, I wanted to share all the methods, tips and tricks that I developed over time with people who might find it useful.
