Do You Struggle to Keep Up with Your Second or Third Language?
Do you want to practice your second language but struggle because either you don’t live where it is spoken, or you don’t have anyone with whom to practice? We have all been there. Author Eve Lindemuth Bodeux, who has been working in the language services industry for 20 years as a professional translator and consultant, has created a book for professionals who work in their second language and want to improve or at least maintain the language skill. It could also help those who have been transplanted away from their home country and whose native tongue is rusty. Bodeux gives a seemingly endless amount of ideas to practice listening, speaking, reading, and writing the language.
