    Hola soy chileno, resido en Viña del Mar, tengo a la fecha 64 años de edad, soy casado y padre de tres hijos ya todos profesionales, y fuera de casa, con sus propias familias en formación. Me desempeño como Corredor de Propiedades certificado por la Asociación de Corredores de Propiedades de Chile. Me gusta el idioma inglés y también el portugués. En Inglés gramaticalmente no tengo problemas, pero sí en los modismos y en vocabulario, es decir, tanto en forma oral como escrita, me comunico, pero hay palabras que nunca las he escuchado. Con los modismos me pasa lo mismo. Prefiero contactar con mujeres a las cuales ayudaré con mucho gusto con mi idioma español siempre que ayuden con mi aprendizaje en inglés. Las espero.
