What I’ve Learned in the Last 31 Days
Thirty-one days of absolute madness on my side, how about you? From summoning resources from every corner of the web and my local library to sleepless nights trying to figure out why my writing looks like cursive and less like the Persian alphabet. It’s raining today, but I have several books waiting for me at the library right now, and I can’t wait to devour them.
I learned that Persian (Fārsī) is a beautiful, yet challenging language especially one to undertake in a 31-day challenge. I wouldn’t change my choice, because it also taught me that I could learn plenty in just a short time. It gave me much needed support and encouragement. It reminded me of how a small change leads to an even more significant change. This is what I needed, and I hope you had a similar epiphany.
I’m ready to take on the next challenge in Persian, and Italian, and Russian. The challenge reinvigorated my love for language learning, and now the next chapter is to use what I’ve learned to provide you with better learning tools.
See you in the next one!
