“To have another language is to possess a second soul.”
“다른 언어도 할 줄 알면 두번째 영혼을 가진다.”
– Charlemagne 샤를마뉴
Just be careful you don’t turn into Voldemort by splitting your soul into seven pieces….oh, was that too dark? Sorry, that was probably too dark. Happy language learning!
And channel your inner prideful Harry when it comes to developing that second-soul language of yours.
Translation by yours truly. All mistakes are mine.
“길은 끝없이 이어진다네…”
“The road goes ever on and on…”
– J.R.R. Tolkien
Language study, study abroad, and in general the adventures of life are never finished. If your language studying motivation is petering out, or you are feeling blue after an amazing summer, or if you haven’t managed the study abroad yet that you’re dreaming of, just remember that the journey isn’t over! It’s a scary business, stepping out your door…but so, so worth it. 힘내요!

Forget past mistakes and forget failures. Forget everything except what you are going to do now and do it.
과거의 실수와 시패는 잊어라. 지금 하고자 하는 바를 제외한 모든 것을 잊고 그것에 매진하라.
– 윌리엄 듀런트, William Durant
