Mark has been interested in languages since he was very young. After obtaining his initial degree in French with a minor in linguistics, he moved to South Korea, where he taught English as a foreign language to students of varying ages and skill levels. After doing this for a year, he decided that he found teaching to be very rewarding, so he pursued and completed a degree in education. Shortly afterwards, he obtained a diploma in teaching English as a second language, thus enabling him to continue doing what he enjoyed so much in South Korea. He has been teaching English for academic purposes at his alma mater since 2008.
