Another Reason To Learn Several Languages

I like to talk. And lately I’ve been thinking about writing more. I just wish I could write as fast as I talk. I’d probably have to use two hands to get even close. I’ve always been a proponent of talking. I also think learning other languages gives you a whole bunch of new people you can befriend. Or in the case of the following, knowing more than one language can  get you home 25 years faster.

  1. ANOTHER good reason to learn a different language: concepts, ideas, categories, even notions of the self can all vary from language to language. Simply put, other people out there deal daily in concepts for which English speakers don't even have words. And learning to think about things a different way is a good idea for anyone who wants to do more writing, right?
