Chur, Switzerland

I grew up bilingual with German and French in the beautiful country of Switzerland. Later I began learning Italian and English in school, before I went on exchange to Sweden to learn Swedish... since I came back, I also started learning Spanish in school, which means that I now speak English, French, (Swiss) German and Swedish fluently (all with at least a C1 Diploma), a decent amount of Spanish and some Italian.
