Hey, fellow language learners! It’s hard to learn a language and in order to learn one well we need the support of others. In lieu of recent negative external events happening around the world, I thought I would actually do something nice and a little more positive. So during the month of December, I have created the #languagelearnerspositivitymovement or #LLP for short
How Does the Movement Work?
- For the month of December, you leave 3-5 positive and encouraging comments a week (or even a day) on the social media posts of fellow language learners.
- Approach an established language learner and ask what they have found positive about learning a new language.
- Choose 1- 3 (or maybe more) people during December. It could be some language learners that are really struggling and need some support or have lost motivation. Show them you care by ‘paying it forward’ with resources/buy them some language learning equipment or simply share with them some advice. What will you do?
What is the point of this?
Positivity can encourage a growth mindset, give hope and improve motivation. Emotions are powerful when in comes to forming memories. If one is stressed or sad they are less likely to be able to focus on studying. However, a simple act of kindness could really make a difference. If you are passionate about learning another language then extend that passion to others.I look forward to seeing what positivity we can spread in December across the language learning communities.
