Do you think that any foreign language has not improved as fast and as much as it should have? We use our native language in our daily lives without any problems, despite the fact that we have never made any effort to acquire it. Why doesn’t foreign language proficiency advance in proportion to our efforts? I have been working on this puzzle for my research theme.

Learning is exploring plausible reasoning for ‘Why?’, but not finding a correct answer for it. Considering previous studies, you further investigate, think, and come to your own conclusion. Such a process is the essence of learning. Why don’t you pursue your academic interests within IGS?
