This writing assignment allows you to apply readings and classroom discussions to your own life, which, for this class, is essential. Communication in theory is important, but applied communication can help you make real changes for yourself and those around you.
Watch the provided video about the Five Love Languages, take the Five Love Languages quiz, and write an instructional essay in response. Specifically, write an instructional essay to yourself, wherein you list the 5 love languages, identify and explain your own primary love language (based on your highest score), and instruct your future self on how you should advocate for yourself in future (or current) romantic relationships. Use personal examples from your life and information from our class (readings, videos, discussion, and lectures) to explain to the future you how you should adjust your own communication style and preferences to best communicate love to people whose primary love languages are different from yours. Address how you should address all five of the love languages in these instructions.
