Reasons to Learn Another Language

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

For as long as I can remember, I struggled with learning other languages. There are studies that show that children who are exposed on a regular basis to more than one language from a young age more easily pick up new languages in adulthood. I was not a child that was exposed to more than one language.

Most folks would say: good health, loving family and friends.
