Courage – the strength to face one’s fear
It takes courage to speak English out loud. Saying hello to the cashier at the grocery store. Having a conversation on the telephone. Making a presentation to a group of colleagues.
Have you ever talked with someone who spoke your language as their second language? What was your attitude toward that person?
I admire a person who speaks in their second language, no matter how fluently, because I know it took a lot of learning, practice and courage to do it.
