Why I Teach
I enjoy sharing my love of language and of learning. Moreover, I feel very strongly that the study of language enhances our understanding of self and others in a unique way. Our thoughts, our interactions and many of our experiences are mediated by language, and the more we understand about language(s), the more we can relate to the world around us.
