What inspires us to learn a language? Travel, work, moving to another country, passion for a speech or culture. The list continues.
As adults, we have a choice or a specific purpose of choosing a language to learn most of the time. But as a child, we rarely have an opportunity to make this choice.
Since childhood, I have loved exploring cultures and languages, but I spent three years learning German because I had no choice.
I remember the boredom of sitting through these classes, repeating verbs over and over, and being jealous of my classmates in English class.
I want to share my personal experience as a primary second language teacher on how we can inspire our young learners on their journey to learn the language, learn through the language, and about the language.
