A Bit About The Blog…
Empowering Independent Language Learning
The goal of Language Learners Journal is to help students, independent learners and even teachers become more motivated, focused and productive by applying a more holistic approach to learning. This includes teaching simple mindfulness techniques, looking at sleep hygiene, diet and exercise, promoting collaborative study sessions and developing the mindset for success. Language Learners Journal is written for language learners by language learners, with some support from professional linguistics, polyglots, and psychology graduates too.
A Bit About Me…
Hi there, I’m Trisha…
A qualified and experienced life coach, motivational speaker, mindfulness instructor, professional blogger, and writer!
I sucked at learning new things at school, but then one day I started to make real progress. The teachers made me redo my work under close supervision thinking I was cheating! I scored even better second time around. So how did I go from struggling learner to making real progress almost overnight?
I started to take a more holistic approach to learning that included using simple mindfulness techniques and positive thinking strategies that improved my focus and attention span.
Now I want to help you become a more focused, motivated and successful learner.
Today, I have an academic background in scientific research, with the focus being on psychology, not linguistics. So I am approaching language learning from a fresh perspective. I did a science degree, not an art one so please don’t judge the spelling! I have also worked for many years in PR and Marketing and as a Senior Wellbeing Advisor in mental health.
In my spare time, I love learning new languages, traveling around the UK and Europe, drinking cappuccinos and lattes.
My mission is to inspire and motivate people with their self-development and learning new skills, especially languages! Whilst sharing my own experiences and language learning goals too. I do not consider myself to be polyglot, but rather a ‘polynot’, who can scrape by in at least 7 languages. As long as I can order food and coffee in my target language then I am happy.
Current Languages: English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Icelandic & British Sign Language (BSL).
Opportunities & Online Collaborations
I am currently seeking new opportunities both online and face-to-face. I am open to collaboration work, guest posting and sponsorship deals with brands as long as they stand within the values of this site. I am also happy to speak at any motivational events within the UK and online.
