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

“This is my first experience with The Language Learning Institute. I have always wanted to learn to speak the Italian language. My grandparents on both sides are from Italy and I wish that my parents spoke the language to us but they wanted to make sure English was spoken all the time. I have only good things to say about the Institute. The instructors are all very knowledgeable in the Italian language and of the country. As a beginner, they make me feel very comfortable learning this beautiful language. I have enjoyed all of my classes and look forward to future classes with the Institute.”
