The connection between language learning and development
I have noticed the connecion between language learning and development for a long time. The arduous process of constantly being confronted with the unknown and being put of your comfort zone put you in a position of being able to acquire life skills.
When I learned German at school and realised how I stuttered, struggled to find words it helped me gain empathy for English learners. You stop being judgemental and become aware of the hard work it takes just to string a sentence together and the long language journey that we all have to go on. Sometimes this journey can be filled with embarassment, pain and tears but it also can be filled with joy and laughter.
