just a note to say thank you for all the hard work that you and the team at the East Melbourne Language Centre have been doing this last few weeks. In this time of great uncertainty, it is a reminder of what matters, of what is significant.
Thank you all for finding ways to keep the classes going so we can meet virtually and stay connected with our class mates and teachers. It also has been comforting to remember why learning a language is so valuable for us in our connections and networks. Many of us have family and friends at our heart of learning new languages, of love and relationships with other cultures and communities. Learning language strengthens those links and opens new doors as we make our explorations with words and meanings, with ideas, people and literature.
With so many ideas for how to spend more of our time in the home, learning a new language, spending time on grammar or new vocab is definitely high on the lists circulating in social media. I have been very grateful for the last couple of weeks with virtual classes can help me with motivation and expert, structured support.
Many thanks again for the hard work from the teachers and your school,
Vielen Dank! Shukran jazillan.
