Language is the bridge that connects us. Without language we cannot communicate and get our true meaning across to other people. In today's international world where we connect in education, business and play across many countries, being understood has become even more important. Being understood brings us closer to peace, kindness and success in our lives. Often we are not even understood by people who speak our own language! This quote by Nelson Mandela, a man who brought peace with his words, inspires me as a language teacher to make a small difference in the world through helping others be better understood.
"Without language, one cannot talk to people and understand them; one cannot share their hopes and aspirations, grasp their history, appreciate their poetry, or savour their songs." Nelson Mandela.
