When you learn to use another language, you learn so much more about yourself, your own country and its culture and you can share it with so many more people! I have noticed this in myself. I began to learn Japanese 36 years ago and, although my active study was only for about 1 year, it is an ongoing process to this day. What I have noticed is that even as I teach English I also learn more Japanese and the more I learn, the more I am able to share information about America, American pop culture, history and interesting places and people. And gradually students also become able to take in this information through English and to share their country, its culture and history through English too!
So if you want to feel the real power of learning a language, get started, don’t give up and seek chances to use what you learn every day. You will be amazed how your life will change!
Enjoy the adventure of life and deepen it by learning and using a new language!
