'A picture is worth 1000 words!'
This sentence means that we can often communicate information more efficiently in a picture or symbol than with a few words. Pictographs are pictures used as a symbol for a word or a phrase. Many companies use pictographs on their products.
Sometimes pictographs are very useful, sometimes they can be confusing - especially when used internationally. Can you guess the meaning of the symbols on this package of eye cream from the USA?

I have had the chance to see this up close as I not only taught English to professionals around the world, but also as I developed my own skills speaking a foreign language. I saw students who learned faster & better than me, in fact in my first class I was way down at the bottom of the list. I don't have a gift for languages. I really don't. In middle school, my French teacher told me that I should consider learning another language instead. Over time I learned what it takes to overcome obstacles to excel beyond expectations & even earn the top pronunciation award at my school! Later, I went on to make the honors list & I earned the top score of my class for one semester in my MBA program - in Chinese.I will be honest, it wasn't easy. I started out sitting in the back of my classroom blinking. I had no idea what the teacher was talking about most of the time. I struggled with living abroad, finding the right training program & the financial support. I encountered personal set backs and plenty of struggles, but my ultimate goal was to speak Chinese well, really well, and not just 'good enough' to order food at a Chinese restaurant - although I do love doing that! I dreamed of launching my career on a global level through proficient language skills.
