Running and Learning: What are the similarities?

Here, I am running a marathon in the beautiful desert country of Utah. You'll notice the little pack around my waist to carry water, first-aid supplies, and food. Just like with language learning, you have to be prepared with a good dictionary, note-taking strategies, and the right mental attitude. What supplies do you think language learners need most? Share your ideas.

Learning English: What's the Secret?

A student told me that it was her goal to talk like a native speaker. I asked, "Are you sure that is a good idea?" Why do you think I responded that way? What is the secret of learning a language better? Share your ideas.
