At the Language Corner we are happy to teach many languages to people of all different nationalities (we have teachers from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, America and students from Spain, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova…) but it is interesting to see what kind of stereotypes exist.
