We all need inspiration while language learning, am I right?
Sometimes the motivation to keep going is just hard to “muster up.” The great thing is there are billions of language learners past and present that have left us some great quotes to be inspired and keep us going!
Just remember you are not alone on this journey. Enjoy some of my favorite inspirational quotes about language learning!
