Everyone can learn a foreign language. It's a question of providing an environment that catches students' attention and encourages all to participate. We use a variety of classroom activities to reach all individual learning styles and we set high (but attainable) goals for learners.
I encourage students to:
• look at the world from a different perspective (from other cultural viewpoints)
• realize that there is more than one way to see the world and to organize a society
• appreciate and accept others
• look critically at their own culture
• take what is of value from other cultures and incorporate them into their own.
