I speak Spanish and Portuguese. I have not been able to speak them very regularly so am probably a bit less fluent than I was, but hopefully it will be like riding a bike and I can just get back into it! My reading and writing has always been excellent, it's just my speaking which I have had difficulty in, I find the accents and rolling my 'r's difficult!
I came to London to work as an estate agent, after doing some temporary work straight after uni. I live in Battersea and worked at the estate agency for 10 months. Right now, I am looking for a job, which will hopefully involve my languages in some way or another! I also like to keep fit by running and going to the gym as well as other activities such as snowboarding. I am a recreational poker player as well. It's quite funny when other poker players on the site are typing in Spanish and Portuguese and they're flummoxed when I can understand them!
I have not yet but I will!
I am Nick Waddington, went to Leeds Uni to study Spanish and Portuguese. Recently finished working as an estate agent so I can practice and find a job which involves my languages.
Was so much fun and was able to speak so many different languages and meet so many different people!
