I encourage you to talk as much as you can, nudging you constantly to increase your vocabulary, improve your grammar and speak with confidence to your colleagues, clients and friends. We will travel the digital world together exploring interesting topics and images. We will expand our knowledge of the world through English and a little pinch of stardust from the Universe.”
