“Dr. Taghreed takes a whole new perspective on language classes in her new book: “the Anxious Language Learner.” When students enter the classroom, educators generally focus on performance than qualifying obstacles that might detract from their overall understanding. Performance anxiety can be one of the most detrimental afflictions, even for the brightest students. By zeroing in on this stumbling block, Taghreed gives students the skills they need to truly succeed and meet their goals.”
“Language learning can be a great way to curate a new level of self awareness. As Dr. Al-Saraj says ”Learning a new language involves not only coming to understand new words and grammar, but new ways of doing things.“ I was fascinated by the cultural aspect of this book, and Dr. Taghreed’s background and outlook. Her memoir of becoming an accomplished linguist depicts the changes in her own character over time, and how her travels have molded her outlook.”
