Do you take a long term approach to learning a second language?
Have you committed to your second language for the rest of your life?
Have you made language learning a lifestyle? Do you love your new language as much as your first language?
Can you imagine spending not a hundred hours of studying, but instead thousands of hours with your second language? You spend almost every waking hour getting exposure to your native language, for perhaps 4,000 hours a year.
I am awed at the enormity of how many hours I might cozy up with Korean if I make a lifetime commitment. This started out as just flirting a few months ago, the sidelong glance, giggling.
But perhaps I am choosing Korean to become a part of me. Hmm. I’m still adjusting to the idea.
