“A language is a gift” so those who can should share it with others!
I understand that many people may feel that learning a language is not needed or essential for everyday life. And I suppose I understand that thought. I’ve heard others say, “We speak English so everyone should learn English.” I’d have to say I agree with that to an extent. I had the wonderful opportunity to travel abroad to Argentina–they speak Spanish there, so I spoke Spanish.
BUT a language is so much more that words, it’s a mode of expression that expands your vocabulary, thoughts, and exposes you to a different culture. And that’s something that everyone should have the chance to experience!
