You can't be what you can't see.
Marian Wright Edelman
For all the quiet language learners who wished for their stories to be heard - welcome.
The stories I gather here show you that we're all different in how we learn.
That introverts, shy, highly sensitive and anxious people can learn a language as well as anyone else.
That there is a space for slow, mindful, creative language learning.
That our personalities shape the way we learn - and learning a language shapes our lives.
That language learning can be therapeutic, a form of self-care.
These stories are our stories.
