English (native)
Spanish (very fluent)

iii) your location

Neuchâtel

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)

Languages
Playing classical music
Socialising in general (karaoke, dining etc)

v) short introduction about yourself

24-year-old EFL teacher, play French horn and piano, am enjoying living here!
