The truth behind learning languages

 

It has been 12 years since I started learning English and only a few years since I realised that my journey towards mastery will never end. To never stop honing my skills and practicing what I have already learnt will always be my highest priority. These days I cannot imagine my life without using English, since it pervades all areas of my everyday life; every single day I read articles and blog posts in English it, I speak English to foreigners and I teach it to my students. I think in English and it has become part of who I am today. Or maybe rather a big part of me has started to think and live in English. Because I have learnt a foreign language, my life has changed irreversibly and now I simply cannot imagine living without this knowledge. Goethe said “You live a new life for every new language you speak” and although I have heard it over and over, I never fully realised how much meaning there was behind this maxim. Until now.
