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 and mindful approach to learning. This includes teaching simple mindfulness techniques, improving physical well-being, diet, and nutrition, promoting good sleep hygiene, 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 learning coach, motivational speaker, mindfulness instructor, professional blogger, writer, and a Mumpreneur!
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!
However, they soon realized that the progress was coming from me and I went from being the bottom of the class with support to the top of the class supporting others.
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 others become more focused, motivated and successful learners.
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!
My mission is to empower people to learn 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 8 languages. As long as I can order cake and coffee in my target language then I am happy! 😀
Current Languages: English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Icelandic, Italian & 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.
