“He who does not know foreign languages does not know anything about his own.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A German poet, novelist, playwright, a forefather of natural science, a diplomat, and a civil servant, Goethe read and wrote in Latin, Greek, French, Italian, English and Hebrew, as well as his native tongue. He was a celebrity by age 25.
We can’t all be Goethe.
But you can broaden your words and your world by embracing a new language and culture. You can learn basic language skills, listening comprehension, speaking, reading, writing, fundamentals of grammar, and so much more. You can learn how much you have in common with “foreign” languages and people.
You can learn to read the menu at that cool, ethnic restaurant.
