My Language, My Self – A Personal Essay

One thought on “My Language, My Self – A Personal Essay”

  1. As much as I loved the post about our German class, I feel I have to comment on this post because it gave me so much to think about. I never really thought about learning a language that way. But it does make sense. As I was learning English, I always felt rather rebellious about the fact that teachers would try to correct my intonation. I was saying the words in the right order, did they want to take that from me too? I believe now I felt then I was being robbed from my own expression, the one I had acquired in my first language, if I tried to dub my thoughts into English. Now I realize it might be that I’m still resisting to take on that different persona mentioned in the text.
    Awesome post!
    Thank you for the great semester!
