A Tribute to Nelson Mandela

As we pass the one-month anniversary of the death of Nelson Mandela–one of the world’s greatest leaders–and proceed into the new year, the Language Learning Institute invites you to join us in a reflection on the good, and bad, of 2013. As proven by Mandela himself, it’s never too late to move towards greatness. Pushing past fear, uncertainty, and the personal boundaries we create to keep ourselves comfortable can be frightening and unsettling. This fear, if allowed, freezes us and prevents us from attaining something much greater. The following article, posted by CNN, is a humbling tribute to the great Nelson Mandela. Let his life inspire us to follow in the trail of South Africa’s “greatest son” and to work towards being a greater “us” in 2014.

What Our Students Are Saying

“The Language Learning Institute helped me to develop functional conversation skills in French. Despite many years of the language in school, I felt at a loss in being able to communicate effectively. I know I will be more confident as well as better prepared on my next trip to France.”
