What was the inspiration to start or run this business? In 2005, Andrew Brown founded GLN to use language as a tool to help fix our world. Whether it's humanitarian aid, travel, or connecting with others, language and communication are the most crucial tools in helping us fix our world and achieving our goals and dreams in life. GLN provides these tools.
What do you love most about your job? The community of fellow teachers and students, everyone is great. I have met so many fun, interesting people passionate about different cultures–it really motivates me to learn more! Teaching Haitian Creole to Red Cross Doctors before their medical mission to Haiti was one of our favorite successes.
