About David Sumner

David Sumner hails from a small seaside town in Devon (the part of England that’s so rural it puts Tolkien’s Shire to shame), and he’s been living in Berlin since 2010. After completing a Master’s Degree in Politics at the University of Potsdam he got the itch to join Babbel and share his troubles and insights into learning languages. When he’s not living the kebab-fuelled Berlin dream he’s rocking out to Icelandic keyboard rock, playing the drums like Animal from the muppets, and escaping to the Alps every chance he gets.
