Benefits of Learning a Language - Nelson Mandela quote

2 anni fa
Nelson Mandela said, "If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."

Thoughts? Do you find a difference in speaking with someone in a language you both speak as opposed to that person's native language?

Here's an interesting TED talk about how language shapes the way we think:

So, learning a language does not just give us more communication skills but also a way of understanding different perspectives and the way different cultures see the world!
