To insult them in their own language
The more languages you know, the more you are human. (Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk) :)
I checked the list of the languages you are learning.
I am glad, for the time being that Italian is not there.
everything about learning language was already said here.
In my case is more less the same like all of you said. Independence is most important reason for me.
World in which we live is becoming more and more suprising. Global crisis, wars, terrorism .. all this build inside me some small fear .. that everything can change in few hours, minutes ...
Its not that learning languages will save the world, but knowing languages, other cultures ... will allow us to understand each other better.
I am learning languages because is my passion, I enjoy doing it. Also they are very useful tools for communication I started with english because is the most important language and it conects many languages and countries. Right now I am learning french and I hope to speak as many languages as possible.
