I feel as if I grew up with JDJ Bachalski. I attended my first language course with JDJ at the age of 7. With JDJ, I studied English in the UK and Malta, German in Germany, and Mandarin Chinese in China. There, as part of the Gap Year Programme organised by JDJ, I also experienced the adventure of my life teaching English to primary school children. I’ve learnt languages, gained independence, and met people of different cultural backgrounds. I completed my upper secondary education in the UK via JDJ, which has led me to continue my university studies at the Warwick Business School. There, I successfully graduated with the title of MSc in Behavioural Finance. I can genuinely say that JDJ Bachalski has had an immense impact on my education and, thus, my professional career. Today, I live in London and am happily married to a Taiwanese wife. I work as a Financial Application Developer at Bloomberg.
