A representative from ACTFL contacted me a bit ago about joining their #LeadWithLanguages campaign, and I made a short video in which I talk about why learning languages is important to me–in four languages!
Lead with Languages is a campaign run by ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) that is aimed “at making language proficiency a national priority,” and they’ve asked students and professionals to share their language learning stories.
Switching between four languages is definitely not easy! I memorized my script before I filmed the video, but you can tell I still struggled a bit with pronunciation and tonal differences. My goal is to one day be able to seamlessly switch between languages!
I encourage you to join the campaign as well–it’s super easy! All you have to do is make a short video about why learning languages is important to you. The video guidelines are very simple, and I’d love to hear the stories of fellow language enthusiasts!
Happy language learning!
