#436: Foreign Language Class

Over the school year I took a class in the language of the country I just visited, and I’m glad I did! While I didn’t get to use my knowledge as much as I would’ve liked, it did come in handy several times when I was talking to people with limited English. I couldn’t carry on a conversation, but I knew enough. While I was there my speaking level didn’t really improve, but my listening and comprehension level certainly did. By the end of the trip I could listen to a conversation and about half the time I could get the gist of what they were talking about, considering this would probably never happen before the trip I’d say that’s a huge improvement!

#436: Thank you Lord for my foreign language class and how it helped me during the trip to communicate and understand the people around me.

What are you thankful for today? Leave a Comment and let me know, I’d love to read it!
