How to use language learning as a tool for personal growth.
Gift number one: Overcoming the fear of looking stupid
How many times in life are we held back from advancing, expanding our influence, becoming a bigger version of ourselves, because we are afraid of falling flat on our face, afraid of appearing ridiculous, afraid of being laughed at?
Language learning is the ultimate gift for stepping out of your comfort zone, jumping into the unknown and expressing yourself with a limited number of words to connect with another human being. This requires courage and yet it is perfectly acceptable to advance with mistakes, through trial and error, with creativity and a sense of humour.
