Kalifa, thank you for sharing this aspect of your life with me. It was a very interesting read learning about your heritage and how you overcame a language barrier. I read an article the otherday explaining how learning good languages is good exercise for your brain. Here is the link if you are interested: (https://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/18/opinion/sunday/the-benefits-of-bilingualism.html )
I look forward to reading what you have to say in the future.
I liked how you started it off with “before saying something bad to say about me just come ask me”, it says a lot about you, and seems that you are an honest and understanding individual. This is something I can respect. I truly enjoyed learning about your life and where you come from. I am glad that you have been focused and motivated in your readings and learning English. Learning English is such a great accomplishment and you’ve already come so far. This article discusses the positives of knowing more than one language and I think you would enjoy it. https://www.fluentu.com/blog/advantages-of-learning-a-foreign-language/
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
