The study of foreign languages shouldn’t be ignored

The Breeze – Dan Ford

“Learning a foreign language also helps improve one’s understanding of the cultures that speak that language. In my French courses, we’ve extensively spoken about the people who speak the language — the French, the Quebecois and African French speakers. I now have greater knowledge of how these cultures are composed, what they enjoy for pastimes and how they differ politically and socially from the American culture that I’m used to. When learning a language, one dives into the culture when listening to audio programs from native speakers or when reading the news of those that speak that language. These inherently allow for a greater understanding of that foreign culture and an analysis of the differences and similarities between that culture and one’s own.”(more)
