No one is born a silver-tongued polyglot, but for some, foreign language learning appears to come as easily as breathing. For the majority of us foreign language learners, however, we could use a little help.
For most of us, the thought of learning a language is dreadful. Haunted by memories of grade school grammar drills, pronunciation exercises, and childish songs, studying a new language often dips far down our priority list.
But language learning shouldn’t feel like this! Let’s toss all our preconceptions of learning a foreign language aside and see it for what it really should be: an opportunity to connect better with the world and the people in it.
