I was a mecanic to EDF/GDF repairing those bue cars, vans and trucks for the electricity company. Then I returned to school to become an advisor for Gaz De France, selling natural gas to heat houses. Now 6 years retired. My true passion is English motor sports: formula one, rally and circuits (I love Brand Hatch and Lidden Hill). So learning English is a real pleasure and a good way to meet people on the English circuits or museums. I had some races in the 80s and built some racing cars for friends and myself. I waited to be less 'crazy" to pass the motorcycle test in order not to injure myself because I loved speed too much when I was younger. I'm now 61 and I help my son with his racing cars and his great garage. I learn English once per week in school with people of the same age, it's very funny too.. It's the third time I learn with Gymglish and I love it, lots of humour, I take my lessons in the evennig after reading emails and Facebook. I have still a lot to learn as you can see. Best kisses to the Gymglish team, you always do a "great job" as Lewis Hamilton says after each race!— Alain O. (USSY, FRANCE)
