As an adult, learning a second language can be a very intimidating gap. There is so much to learn. How can one possibly find the time to learn it all? However, at this time in history we are facing situations where job loss is at its highest, and company owners are looking for employees that have a good level of at least two, or more languages as they explore the idea of expanding into other countries. So we can take advantage of these so called forced motivations or we might just lose, or never find, ourselves a job.
Most adults, contrary to many children, already have a command in their own language of how to communicate in the present, past, and future. This can be used as a tool to compare to the target language, which helps build a bridge across that gap that learning a new language creates. Using what we already know saves us time and gives us a little incentive to begin such a difficult task. Once you begin, the trick is to never look back, just keep building that bridge till one day it clicks and you are having a conversation in another language!
