Learning a different language

19 June, 2022

Why should we learn a different language?

Well, there are so many uses when you learn a different language. For example, if you are visiting a new country or if you are meeting different people from foreign countries it is useful to know some other languages.

There are so many beautiful languages that people talk in different countries like French, German, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and many more!

Most of the people in the world speak English. That is why the main language we must learn first is English. Some people around the world are polyglots. A polyglot is a person who can speak many languages well.

Richard Simcott born on January 27in the UK, came to be known as ‘Hyper Polyglot’ because he could speak 30 languages fluently. You can learn a language from books.

If you go to a library near your area, you can find many books about languages! It will be a fun and an amazing journey if you start learning a language now. John Fotheringham once said, ‘’Trying to learn a different language in a traditional academic way is like trying to learn how to play soccer through a book instead of just going out on the field’’.
