    Language connects us to one another. Be mindful of how important language is to our perception of reality and all its various aspects. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You can empower yourself beyond your present limitations, if they exist, and expand your awareness beyond the hindering boundaries of the lexicon of language. Robert William McCaul, winner (with Marek Kiczkowiak) of the TeachingEnglish blog award, examines the influential ideas of linguist Stephen Krashen, and the implications they have for the language classroom. If you've ever doubted whether you're a good language learner, then bear in mind that you've already learned one language very well indeed – your first.   P icture a sunlit Grecian sea or the deep hues of Santorini’s rooftops.
