I was broad up in Dutch as I lived the majority of my life in a small town in Flanders. Around the age of 16 I got more and more interested in IT and thus automaticaly started communicating frequently in English. Due to the importance of English in this digital era, I focused on making English my second language. For about a year now I live close to the French border in the hope to increae my understanding of another official language of my country: French.
