Learning a language is so much more than just learning the grammar and the vocabulary.
Learning a language means communicating and expressing yourself fully in it. It is not about translating word by word from your mother language into Spanish, but to be able to express an idea without translating it.
One of the beauties of learning a foreign language is that you express yourself differently in each language. You are capable of becoming a different person with a different voice.
This happens when you understand the culture behind the language you are communicating in. You understand "their" ways. That understanding in confluence with your personality create a whole new you.
This alchemy is a magical process that creates a wonderful sense of expansion. You grow. You unfold.
