Language acquisition journal

Journals are wonderful tools for developing metacognition, that is, knowing about our own learning and thinking. Using a journal in the process of learning a new language, can provide you with the means to reflect on your own progress, and provide evidence of growth over time. The journals can also provide artifacts of learning that can be repurposed. For example, you may wish to apply for a job that requires the ability to learn other languages and respect cultural differences; selections from your journal could provide your potential employer with examples of how you work through a new language and your understanding of the cultures in which the language is spoken.
