This is my first attempt at posting a blog. Exciting!

I am a Hospitality Instructor at Canadian Tourism College, where I deal with International Students a lot, so I would like to begin my first blog post with a link to an article that caught my attention. It is about Carmen, a Mexican immigrant and how adult education helped her in her success.

I hope you enjoy this story as much as I did:  The Importance of Transforming Adult Learning

Learning a new language, studying philosophy, reading up and learning more on some historic events, are just some of the ways that learning can change the way you look at the world. We are very often afraid of the things that we do not know. By learning and better understanding we are able to lose that fear, and are able to accept new things, ideas, and cultures.

There are many reasons why people should take learning experiences as far as possible, after all life itself is a learning experience which never stops.
