One summer break, Tom decided to try his hand at teaching English and, after qualifying with distinction through the Cambridge University-administered CELTA programme, went on to teach English to students from more than 30 countries in Oxford. Fortunately, his English is much better than his French, German and Spanish, although he claims to get by in all of them.
