  •  Exactly why one should learn other languages (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    For the experience of learning to think about the world in different terms. Even such common Romance languages as French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese each have a distinctive flavor and world-view that is not the same as English (or each other, for that matter, though it's still easier for, say, an Italian and a Spaniard to understand each other than for either one to understand an English-speaker).

    If it's
    Not your body
    Then it's
    Not your choice
    AND it's
    None of your damn business!
