Hi there! My name is Denise, I’m from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I love speaking about my language and my culture with people who are interested in learning about it.
I enjoy studying languages and from my own experience, I can say how hard it is at the different stages of the process. Motivation is the key when it comes to learning and teaching; determination, energy, and passion above all. As a teacher, one could be passionate when standing in front of the class but as a student it’s also important to be passionate about the culture in which we are diving into. As I see it, there are no limits when it comes to learning, but I feel that it’s important, especially for adults, to be patient and kind to oneself.
It’s crucial to face the challenge with excitement, dedication, and trying not to be scared of making mistakes. Don’t forget that even when learning is hard work, it could be fun! Plus… you will laugh at twice the jokes. As Nelson Mandela allegedly said: “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to the heart.”
