Let me add to this because my intro was not 250 words. I am looking to be an interpreter in Portuguese. I did teaching and/or volunteer work in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Peru, and Brazil. My husband is Brazilian, and I speak Portuguese every day. My work experience has mostly been in the customer service and teaching fields. I have taught people of all ages. Most of the teaching I have done has been in the ESL field. I have taught Portuguese classes and one Spanish class to a child.
I did not grow up in a multilingual household. I grew up with multilingual friends, and I worked with multilingual individuals. Additionally, I have studied, and I have been immersed in other languages for a number of years.
