psychology of learning
I have always been fascinated with languages . When I was younger I would imagine myself in another country , conversing with the locals in their own language , agreeing to what they are saying and being able to tour the whole country without an interpreter . My childhood dream was to be a master of a certain language . It wouldn ‘t hurt if I would be a linguist too .
