I was sitting in class a few weeks ago talking to ‘Anna’ during the mid-morning break. I’ve tried to take every opportunity I could to share Bible truths with her since class started in November. Aboubacar joins us. Conversation turns toward French language study. We all agree it’s hard work and time consuming. Aboubacar turns to me and very seriously says, “When it comes to learning, whether you’re an adult or a small lizard, it’s difficult!” I’m not sure why, but I thought that was hysterical. Indeed, sometimes language learning does make you feel like a small lizard!
While our formal French studies are now complete, informal French language learning will continue for years. It’s true, ‘learning is difficult,’ but God gives wisdom to those who ask for it (James 1:5)… even to small lizards like us.
