What I love the most about GLN is experiencing the transformational power teaching/learning a language can have over people. I love to see my students reach that moment when they are able to understand and pronounce enough words to form their own sentences in the target language. Their eyes light up, they smile, and they go for it. It’s like watching someone open up a window, take a deep breath of fresh air, and smile at the world. One of my favorite moments was when my French students and I had brunch at Bistro du Coin to celebrate the end of the semester, and I heard them order their meal in excellent beginner level French. I was so proud of them.
