Even though now the world seems so small – you can go everywhere in the matter of hours, you still need a key to the country you are going to. That’s what I love about teaching – giving my students the key to the people and the culture through language. With all tough diplomatic relationship with Iran these days, I’m glad I can open up the door to it even if it’s just a little. Teaching with GLN inspires me and pushes me to a better teacher and student.
