Too sensitive? Maybe a highly sensitive person...

Do people tell you you're overly sensitive? That you overreact? Do you feel different from the others, but 'shy' or 'introverted' doesn't feel like the whole picture?

Maybe you're an HSP: a highly sensitive person. 

You don't like small talk, are easily overwhelmed and avoid conflicts at all costs.

A course for you?

In this course, we start with a 'highly sensitive person test', to see if you really are an HSP. 

From there on, we'll review all the major aspects of life for high-sensitives: work, love, friendship, leisure time, amongst many others.

We'll see how you can deal with your HSP issues, instead of asking yourself how to be less sensitive. Because it's just how you are. There is no 'turn off' button hidden anywhere.

The course...

... is for anyone who thinks he/she is too sensitive.

... contains many exercises.

... includes links to many extra resources.

... ensures full, free lifetime access.

... includes all future extra lectures and upgrades always for free.

... Unconditional Udemy 30 day money-back guarantee.

Looking forward to your feedback!

Hi! I'm Alain.

Curiously, when I was a teenager, many language teachers told me I wasn't so good at languages. My Dutch was poor. My English teacher even advised me to follow extra courses.

I discovered I loved languages when I went to Germany in 2010. I had some basic German skills but started to speak in German from day one. What I got in return was amazing: friendship, love, respect and a good level of German. Since then, I'm passionate about languages.

Now I'm proud to be able to express myself in French, Dutch, English, German, Maltese and Spanish. I also have some Portuguese notions. And I'm always busy learning new languages and taught some of my languages via tutoring.

I also have a life besides languages. I love economics, politics and all the processes that shape our society. I worked in communications a few years and hold 3 degrees: in Journalism, EU Studies and Management.
