Based on 6 years of research and 12 years of experience teaching languages, this ebook links language learning to personal, community and world leadership, showing how learning a language can help us change the world in wildly positive ways. It touches upon themes of education, storytelling, empowerment, power, culture, critical thinking and problem solving.
The book highlights world leaders such as
- Albert Einstein
- Nelson Mandela
- Mohandas Gandhi
- Rigoberta Menchu
These great leaders extended their reach, impact and influence because they spoke more than one language. Learning other languages gave them opportunities to engage in meaningful conversations, connect with others and the work that they were so deeply passionate about a larger scale.
When we learn other languages, we change who we are. We grow to understand and appreciate the world around us in new and meaningful ways. As we change, so the world changes. That’s the real reason we believe in the power of learning other languages. Because when we do, we learn to reach out to others, connect deeply and express our passion for life and our life’s work in profoundly transformative ways.
This ebook includes practical classroom activities teachers can use with students of a variety of ages.
Themes: leadership, empowerment, second and foreign languages, stories, story telling, changing the world.
Go on, be empowered.
