As I start my new Language project I can’t help but think “wow, this might be the last time I’m at this stage with a Language.” There is still one Language I wish I had the time to take on but I think it will be like the cello was for me in music - that thing I always wanted to do but know that to be responsible as a musician I shouldn’t do. There is such a thing as spreading yourself too thin. So I’m going to relish every moment of this process. #somethoughts
Yesterday during our AMAZING workshop @themvmtlab we were asked to remember the “why” of our movement practices and teaching. This video sums it up. It was the spring semester of my sophomore yr @pitzercollege, almost 9 yrs ago! There was an open spot for the junior yr abroad program in Quito, Ecuador. I jumped at the opportunity last-minute, not knowing a whole lot of Spanish or what to expect. Luckily, I never struggled w lack of communication or connection. Music and movement connected me w/ this place and people in a way spanish convo and grammar never could have. The connection I could quickly establish through 🎶 and 💃🏻 also helped me improve my concrete language skills in a carefree manner.
Nia takes me back to the 19yr old young lady in the video. I discovered @niatechnique a couple yrs ago in grad school when life was too serious. I felt disconnected from my own nature and body. Through its mix of playfulness and structure I am finding balance. Nia has helped me let go of the idea that in order to “get things done” or learn new skills, the process must be draining and stressful. This lifestyle has extended into all aspects of my life. I am grateful for Nia for my own mental and physical health and love that through teaching I get to extend this invitation to play and its benefits with others. #whatmovesyou#languagelearning

Happy Monday from us at Learning Enterprises! Today we head to Asia to learn about LE Thailand.
This photo was taken by volunteer Adelaide Cahill this past summer! Pictured is the celebration for the ordination of a young Thai man at the local temple.
It is quite common for host families across our various programs to invite students to see temples and churches or to attend religious festivals and services. Volunteers are never obligated to participate in the worship tradition(s) they encounter. They are encouraged, though, to consider the invitations to see religious places and events as opportunities to learn about the communities they are living in.
I had the chance to read a Chinese children book! So interesting, and more interesting the fact that I found some words I couldn’t understand, and that children are taught poems from the beginning! (poems which meanings I also couldn’t understand) 🍎🎈 They also learn the 拼音 and radicals at the first 6 months of school! #learningchinese#学习#汉语 #🇨🇳
