Make it a point of pride

I’m convinced the only way to get good at a second language is by making it a point of pride. Language acquisition takes years of self-motivated effort. You’re fooling yourself if you think you can learn it in class alone. That is putting the onus on the teacher. No, attaching the acquisition of language to your pride is the way forward. Only then can you be motivated enough to do what is necessary to acquire the language.

I think it’s fair to say this for language learning, now start making sure your other goals are a point of pride.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
