A Message From Sandy – February 2022

In this month’s cultural corner I want to take the opportunity to honor Black History Month by featuring an African American woman whose bravery and fearlessness touched my heart.

Harriet Tubman, an African American woman whose life’s work changed so many lives and who reminds us to this day that with passion and sacrifice we can all leave the world a better place.

Tips on learning a new language:

  • Get real. Decide on a simple, attainable goal to start with so that you don’t feel overwhelmed.
  • Find a language habit that you can follow even when you’re tired, sick, or madly in love.
  • Play house with the language. The more you invite a foreign language into your daily life, the more your brain will consider it something useful and worth caring about.
  • Think about language learning as a gateway to new experiences.
