Meet the Team

With one exception, each person on our team is a graduate of AssistU (and our exceptional exception also happens to be the only guy on the team!). Although a small team, we are mighty and care deeply about each other, our profession, and helping you. We ask each other to weigh in on different topics throughout the year, some silly, and some serious, so be sure to stop back and see what we have to say! The current question is:

 

How many languages do you speak, and what language would you love to learn that you don’t currently speak?

One. I’d love to have been fluent in German as I only had one living grandparent by the time I was 4 and we had a language barrier.

I can only say that I speak one language fully, although I can speak and understand some French, have a passable restaurant knowledge in Spanish, and know a few ASL signs. I would like to learn to speak Mandarin.

English. I used to speak Greek but I lost it. I would love to speak French and Italian… but would not take the time at this stage of life to learn them.

I speak a smattering of German, a little bit of French and enough Italian to be dangerous in public spaces. When I was a teenager I was rather fascinated by all things Russian, so my answer would have been Russian for a long time. Now, though, I think it would have to be Mandarin – I think it would be truly fascinating to visit China and be able to have conversations freely and fully with the people.
