Profile

Silke Streit     

I see myself as a polyglot and I can look back on many years of life, study and work experience in Germany, Ireland, Spain, Belgium, Sweden and the Netherlands. Besides acquiring 5 languages, I familiarized myself with people's day-to-day concerns in each country and got into the spirit of the different cultural environments. Today, English, Spanish, Dutch and Swedish hold an equal place with my German mother tongue among the working languages of my daily professional life.
