Second Language

My left eye is bad, real bad. My right eye is awesome. This has been the case since I was a child. I don’t wear glasses, when the bad eye is corrected by a lens the magnification is disorientating when I focus on a single object. That being said, no matter how hard I tried I could not and still have yet to learn a second language. Two years of classes and I remember maybe three words. Do you think my lack of left eye vision could be a factor? I also heard that left handed people have a more difficult time with language but I am not sure if that’s just a misnomer.

I had to write a paper for my psychology class and this article was the most informative one that I could find! I read the entire thing over and over again! The only thing that stinks is when you try to use Easy Bib and put your website in there it says error :(
