The inexistence of proper master-apprentiece language tuition

Published by Hwaigon in the blog Hwaigon's blog. Views: 245

Upon having being exposed to the beauty of music mysteriously produced by the pianist's fingers during a concert did it dawn on me that, unlike in music, in language development and acquisition there rarely is the most unique master-apprentice relationship. There is, rather, the university teacher-student relationship which hardly lives up to the quality and profoundity of self-discovery of an apprenitece pianist looking up to his master. There seems to be no true mastery in language embodied in person, at least not
in non-natives speaking excellent English. I haven't met one. And I don't want to call myself master as I'm miles from it.
