Learning languages

Change Is Good

When we learn a new language, we adopt some of the behavior patterns of another culture, which in turn changes our personalities and perceptions. Many of the difficulties that grown-ups face in language learning come from a resistance to this kind of change. It is often more comfortable to follow the patterns and pronunciation of our own language, rather than to commit to fully imitating the new language, because as adults, we have a stronger vested interested in our own identity, and in what we already know. In order to overcome these learning barriers, adults need to benefit from the help of an encouraging tutor and an enthusiastic group of fellow learners.
