A Lifetime Love for Language Learning - TEFL Blog


Mon, 25 Nov 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences A Lifetime Love for Language Learning As a young child, I was, for some reason, obsessed with the idea of learning French. I tried a couple of languages, including Finnish at some point, but kept going back to French. I have no idea why because I was never exposed to the culture or the language itself at that age. I doubt I even knew anything about the country itself. I think I assumed learning French would make me sound smarter but, the joke's on younger me, I have no skill in French and never have. I tend to struggle with romance languages in general. Table of Contents My Personal Second Language Experience My Choice Do you want to teach English abroad? Take a TEFL course!
