    Portugal - Last active: 23 hours ago - Tests: 4

    Hi, I am Luís Lopes from Portugal. I have been working as an account manager assistant (in Banif Bank, Portugal) since 2010. In this work, in addition to talking to customers, I also do research on Excel sheets, enter data and analyze customer data. I love working in Excel, work and "play" with Excel formulas. Last year (2014) I was nearly six months working in Norway, speaking only in English. I was highly praised by many Norwegians, who told me that spoke English very well. So it is very easy for me to do translations English-Portuguese-English. Apart from that, I really like to learn new languages! I'm not the fastest worker, but I am very meticulous and almost obsessive about giving attention to detail - which would you rather prefer? I'm a serious and professional person that wants always to learn more. I'm a friendly person and a teamworker.
