HOW IT ALL STARTED

Background
Anke is the director of Languages & More. She is Dutch, and her childhood was in the Netherlands and Germany. Following her A-levels in Germany, she moved to The Hague to take a BA in Business Administration in Hospitality Management. After graduating she followed an international management career in  the areas of Marketing, Sales and Customer Service, and got herself a Masters in Marketing and Sales.

Experience in learning languages
Having lived and worked in five European countries, Anke definitely  knows a thing or two about learning languages! She has been living in Spain for more than 20 years and speaks native Spanish (as well as English, Dutch and German) and high-level French.

Change of career
In order to combine work and motherhood she changed careers and studied for language teaching certificates. Anke started working as a freelance teacher, in language academies as well as at the University of Cantabria. Once she had gained the necessary experience, she made a dream come true, by starting her own language school, Languages & More.
