First of all, apologies to those who might actually believe that I MYSELF have been published in the Guardian. I’m sadly not quite there yet. This interesting blog has been published in the Guardian, and I decided to share it for the greater enjoyment of my language-geek readers.
A really thought-provoking, nice piece about all the ways learning languages can be good for your mental health. A lot of it resonated with me.
… I can’t believe I can even write this sentence, but: my article, “Learning a language helps me talk back to the voice of depression”, is now live on the Guardian’s language-learning site! I’m really honored and excited (and nervous) to have the chance to share my experiences with language-learning and mental illness with their audience.
Please do go check it out, share, and comment there, here, or both (and if you’d like to retweet me announcing it, here you go!).
Many thanks to Holly Young at the Guardian for giving me this opportunity — there have been so many great articles about language-learning posted there recently, I’m thrilled to be in their company!
