About me


I am a hotel professional who works for Marriott International Hotels. None of this would be possible without foreign languages. Foreign languages have helped me see the world and make connections with people all over. I am glad to have websites like these that help with language learning.

My advice to others is to not worry about being perfect and not making mistakes. Identify what are your goals in language learning and go from there. My main goals in language learning are to be understood, to help me in my career, and to make connections with people. As long as I am achieving those goals, nothing else matters.

I am a Concierge in Las Vegas, USA and its because of foreign languages and hard work. I never would gotten to work in the hotel industry if not for foreign languages. For years I tried to get a job in any hotel, in any position but nobody gave me a chance. But once I learned Spanish, that changed everything as I finally got hired in a hotel in 2007...

Once I got in the hotel Industry, my next step was to become a Concierge. That took a long long time to do...Many years and languages later I finally became a Concierge in 2013. Becoming a Concierge in the hotel industry was tough, but I finally did it and I once again owe it all to foreign languages and hard work.

How do I study so many Languages? I only focus on the spoken part of the language and topics that are related to my job. Since I work in hotel, I will only focus on relevant topics that have to do with my job and that interest me. Writing and reading are important too, but for my career goals all I need to learn is how to speak now! So whatever your language goals are, focus on them and worry about the rest later. When starting a foreign language, it is best to not try and take on the entire language all at once. Focus on sections what you need first, then later on you can study other topics.

Why do I study so many languages? Because the competition never goes away. Other people can rely on luck and who they know to get great jobs...For me, I can always rely on foreign languages. I am ahead of my competition, and I am here on Lang-8 practicing to make sure it stays that way!

I owe alot to Lang-8 and Skype and all the friends I have for my career success. All the helpful people I've met on both of these sites helped me become what I am in my career. I would not be able to speak foreign languages with out their help. I am always on Skype and Lang-8 so if you have questions you can ask me anytime!

Skype: junong2014



The best way to reach me is through Skype, if you send me a message there I will receive it alot faster.
