Make learning happier.

Language

My task, which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel–it is, before all, to make you see.

Joseph Conrad

Learning

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

Henry Ford

Living

The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places: but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.

About 

A Happy Learner is a space for lovers of language, books & teaching (and perhaps tea, too!)

My name is Christin. I’m a certified Speech-Language Pathologist who chose this field because of that second word: language. Avid reader, dedicated anglophile, & wannabe author-poet, the only thing that makes me happier than creating products to stoke you and your students’ love of language & books is a hot cup of tea and uninterrupted reading time.

JRR Tolkien considered himself “a hobbit in all but size.” Join me in exploring five attributes of Tolkien’s simple life expressed through Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin.
