- I don't have the gift for foreign languages ​​(with appropriate training and personal effort everyone can achieve a certain competence)

- Too old - learning is an important personal decision, not bound to chronological age

- If a child learns several languages ​​it presents the possibility to replace them with another - not,

linguists have shown that each language is stored in another location in our brain, and that knowledge of a foreign language has a positive effect on the adoption of any of the following languages, we believe that a positive approach to teaching based on promotion and creating a positive atmosphere creates the preconditions for a positive optimistic attitude towards learning foreign languages. http://www.columna.hr Eugenija Parać For the FEZ13 - Festival of Knowledge -
