A language teacher that is a language learner is a special animal!
As I struggle to get to grips with the Russian language, I am reminded of the many reasons why I love learning and teaching languages.
An empathatic teacher is surely someone who can laugh at himself!
I recently told my new Russian teacher that it was half past Thursday.
A simple mistake, she says very nicely.
I then started my assignment, to descibe a room.
I continued to tell her that we had a raspberry kitchen and a boat on the table!
These are good signs ! As I now will remember the difference between a spoon and a boat and a raspberry and the word small!
