“Holy cr*p. Such a great background man👀 It’ll be a pleasure to take this course ⚡ Here we go!” This is a comment from Byran Hernandez in the first class of the English for Startups Course.
Are you curious? In this blog post you will meet Santiago Gómez and his great background.
I was born in Medellín, Colombia and I have lived in Australia (mostly based in Sydney but travelled through the country for couple of months), Germany (Düsseldorf), Switzerland (Zug, a small town near Zurich) & The Netherlands (Utrecht) and naturally, in Colombia (Medellín & Bogotá).
What is your favorite place in the world?
My favorite place to live is Medellín. However, my favorite place in general is the beach, it doesn’t matter where, but if there is a beach, I’d be happy!
I speak English and German. I learnt English cause I’ve been listening to rock music since I was born so I guess that was a lot of exposure to the language, then after high school I started traveling the world and all of that also helped me. Then in Australia I went to collage and that’s when I became fluent. I learnt German cause I moved to Switzerland, and I met somebody who had been in the second WW and I loveeee history, so I wanted to talk to him so badly (but he didn’t speak English) so I started learning through online courses and talking to people, after 2 months I was able to have a convo with him.
I have met people from literally all over the world, and that’s thanks to speaking English. I got my last 2 jobs (which I loved) thanks to speaking English too. And I can go anywhere in the world with no fear at all, cause I know that I will be able to communicate.
A business man
Over 4 years. My fav thing is to know that somebody’s dream to learn something became true and that I helped with it.
My course English for Startups, will teach you the basic (and most used vocabulary) in the entrepreneurial world. My experience was amazing! It was great to work with such an amazing team of production, edition, quality assurance and the Course Director, I also learnt a lot while recording. I strongly believe that by teaching we learn!
