My mother was the ultimate working-mum. She would wake up at around 6am and cook for the day, get my brother and I ready for school and then she would get ready for work herself.

Back then, I dreaded the amount of work and energy I would have to invest to get up to speed. And, of course, I procrastinated big time. Anyway, after an intense year of learning, I'm ahead of the curve. My German is far from perfect but I feel comfortable speaking and interacting in the language, which has made an amazing impact in my life. I'm breaking down here the key factors that have gotten me ahead:
