I have devoted 2020 to learning languages: Russian and Spanish. Throughout university years I used to study 4 languages simultaneously: Russian, Spanish, German and Italian besides teaching English. I also studied Japanese for 2 years.
This poem Words are the keys to worlds describes how I felt right before my Russian language exam…
This has been a wonderful journey. I have pushed myself to my limits in the past few months and I have acquired a lot in the meanwhile. I would say learning languages is fun, but right now I feel anything but fun.
I have been learning languages all my life long. I have always set goals I found challenging and demanding, so I took up more and more languages.
