“Before I came to Ireland I had no money for a language course, so I bought a dictionary, and I read it all. It took me a year. I still have it, it’s very big and heavy. I don’t read it that often anymore, but I still use it if I see a word I don’t know. The problem is that I know a lot of words, but sometimes people still don’t understand me because of my accent.”
