    I am a Belgian woman, 31 years old, who loves languages! I have always loved languages and was a quick learner. When I was five I could speak already a fair amount of English and after that I learned French, English and German at school. When I was twelve, I did a school exchange trip to France for a week and a couple of years later I was a translator between some Irish exchange students and my school. I did small translating jobs at my holiday job for two years when I was studying at university and talked a lot of French when I worked as a volunteer with Oxfam. 6 years ago my passion for language brought me to France, and me and my husband run a bed and breakfast there for two years. 4 years ago we decided to live more ecologically and decided to move to Portugal. I have been living here for four years now almost and speak already a good amount of Portugese. Because we have a lot of English and French-speaking friends here, I still practice these languages as well. My interests go out to all sorts of things: music, books, nature, .... whatever comes up. My native language is Dutch/Flemish but I speak fluent English, a good amount of French and already a good amount of Portugese. As a mother of a young boy and a baby girl, I love work at home so I can combine this with my family live. For me working online is a great way of combining all these things and still earn some money. I translated websites, manuals, lists, emails, articles,e-books,... whatever you want! I also wrote articles (still do) and did a lot of data-entry and web-research. (still do) I currently work for a couple of fixed clients on a parttime, long-term base as a proofreader and as a virtual assistant. Feel free to contact me for further questions!  less
