Being passionate about languages ​​and foreign cultures, I chose to turn towards translation. So I enrolled in Bachelor of Arabic at the INALCO (Institute Nationaldes Languages ​​and Oriental Civilization). But despite having good results, I made me realize that the theoretical side did not suit me.

I decided to find out about careers and training related to languages, either about me or internet via referral sites. I also went on the forums to read student testimonials. And finally many elements brought me to the tourism sector that uses the language skills but also marketing or selling that I had a little studied in high school. So I decided to find my way in this area in the coming year and I am confident.
