According to Haruki Murakami (2016) learning another language is like becoming another person. A starting point in learning a new language is being able to start constructing our own identity. Through finding new meanings, metaphors and manners of speech. One may start to see a new identity within themselves. This online course will hopefully allow students to grow as individuals.
