Starting from scratch

Starting from scratch

Have you ever started something from scratch – you would probably be superhuman if you hadn’t!! Everybody has to start something from the bottom up….

Most of my life skills have been learnt from scratch, thanks to amazing parents, super teachers and fabulous siblings, I have gained tonnes of talent.  My mother taught me to make bread from scratch, my father taught me to drive, although I think it was more stressful for him rather than me.

When I was learning Greek I totally started from scratch, at first it was frustrating but slowly slowly, with a little patience and a lot of practise I got there, I made mistakes, which, when I look back now, were pretty funny.  The same with Swahili, I didn’t have a clue, there were a lot of hand signals to start with but again, through practise I mastered it.  I remember the mistakes I made because the locals thought I was hilarious and I never did it again, unless I wanted a laugh.

You are important for us! 

When we start with a new student at NikaTeacher, we begin with a language hour, so that when you are starting from scratch, we can figure out 1) where you are and 2) how much you already know.

This benefits both of us so that we get the balance right when you start learning, and we don’t throw you in at the deep end.

Mistakes are one of our biggest obstacles, but we ‘nip it in the bud’ immediately so that you don’t make the same mistakes again, you get it, it’s taken on board.  Otherwise your learning becomes ‘fossilised’ and you’ll keep making the same mistakes.  It’s not because we are mean, it’s for your learning benefit.

Teacher’s role at NikaTeacher 

The role of the teacher at NT is like planting a tree, we make sure the roots are in place first, then we nurture the tree and watch it grow and flourish.

So if you are starting from scratch, or a bit rusty, we will make sure that you succeed and blossom.

Now it’s your turn

Have you ever started learning a language from scratch?  Or a new skill from zero up?  We would love to know about your experience…….
