English: what I already know
English and international relations is my first specialty. That’s why it’s so easy for me to grasp new IT information: tutorials, videos, books, articles and documentation – everything in IT is originally published in English.
Of course, I’m not a native speaker, but working as a translator for a news agency, a TV channel and as a freelancer for more than 5 years has given me a lot of experience, especially in written communication.
My oral English communication skills are also at a high level. By the way, my accent is not as Russian-ish as that of many other Russian speakers.
I would like to work for an international IT company and be involved in its international activities in order to use my strong suit – English.
English: further learning plans
It’s my little dream to just take my English-English dictionary and improve my language skills to the Upper Advanced level. For now I don’t have time for this, unfortunately.
