The Art of a Different Language

Do you know another language? Either fluent or at least know a few conversational words other than your home language. It’s so fun to learn different cultures. We’re all so completely different; it’s exciting to dig around what and how others go about simple things.

For me, I know a bit of Spanish (2 years from high school) and a few bilingual acquaintances that help me remember words šŸ˜Š

I recently gotten myself interested in American Sign Language. I have always been fascinated by the deaf culture and finally was able to start learning a few years ago. It’s so fun! I’m still learning more and more this day!! I’m addicted (hehe).

Learning a new language is tough and takes discipline, but that goes with learning anyway! Any kind of new knowledge is difficult. The key is sticking with it. The age old “practice makes perfect” saying is real!

Learning new languages is a form of art also. Think about it. You’re learning a beautiful new thing – no matter what language it is!

So, go out and embrace this beautiful world! So precious!

  1. I believe that if we all spoke one more language besides our mother-tongue, there would be less strife and more acceptance in the world. In the past I have taught ESL to refugees and acted as an interpreter and liaison during my army days. I always wanted to learn sign language in order to communicate better with speech impeded people. Alas an accident left me partially paralysed in my left arm. Now I am not flexible enough to sign.

    1. Yes! Exactly! I so agree with you. There’s no acceptance anymore sadly.
      Sounds like you had a great life in the army days. I appreciate it.
      I’m so sorry about your accident šŸ˜¦ that’s never fun!! On the plus side, you could still learn the signs though and interpret it that way. Just a girl who tries to see the positive in everything.
