Hello, I'm Caty nice to meet you. I'm very passionate about languages and culture. I believe we can communicate regardless our nationality. The key is to find your own words and express them using the language. At the end of the day it's a tool, you just have to learn how to talk about: cooking, sports, history, or anything that interests you. I'm sure you will be surprised to discover how many people are alike. Give yourself the chance! :)
