Today is L – for the April Blogging A to Z Challenge. I am using Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s “Encyclopedia of Me” to journal daily.
L is for Languages
There are well over 6,000 languages in the world. That is an amazing number. Languages can vary from region to region, even town to town. No wonder it can be a challenge to communicate.
Canada has two official languages – French and English. Although as we become more diverse, many more languages can be heard in all corners of the country.
I grew up hearing French and although I can speak it as a native, I don’t use it much. Learning more than one language greatly enhances one’s brain power though. And opens up many doors.
The more we travel, the more we communicate with people from around the world, the more open we become to different cultures. Language can either separate us or draw us closer together.
