Have you ever thought about how it was possible for you as a baby to learn to speak your mother tongue without training? No one taught you to understand and speak your mother tongue. You just listened and imbibed. The same way you can learn to speak French, Spanish, German or any other language today.
Now that you are thinking about it, does it not ring a bell to you that as a baby you learnt to talk by listening to what were said around you? And have you considered why it was important, without prompting, for you as a baby to learn to talk? It should be the same reason for you to want to learn French, Spanish or the German language. That reason is curiosity and the need to be in a position to communicate with French, Spanish or German language speaking people that you come across.
How You Leant To Talk
Following your birth, as soon as you began to hear all that were being said around you but did not understand, you instinctively made every effort to learn and understand the language, in order to be able to communicate as soon as possible. Suffice it to say that you also have the same need now to understand and speak some important foreign languages such as the German language, the French language or the Spanish language.
While I am sure that you are aware that communication is the reason for which languages exist, I am not sure of how many languages you can speak? If you speak only your mother tongue, don’t you know that you can repeat how you learnt to speak it over and over by simply listening to other languages’ conversational tutorials? Today as a grown up person, you should do better if you decide to learn the French language, for an instance
The Risk Of Being A Single Language Speaker
Do you know that researchers have since discovered that those who speak just one language are dangers both to themselves and to the world, because they are easily bigoted, and suffer from xenophobia as a result of inability to understand what people of other languages say around them? You want to be free from the idiosyncrasy of a single language speaker. The Spanish language is spoken by a lot of different nationalities so learning to speak it, gives you a goodwill link to them.
Are you also not aware that single language speakers are more at risk of suffering from conspiracy or even terrorist attacks unlike multi lingual people who could understand what is being said around them without the speakers knowing it? You can understand and speak any foreign language (be it German, French or Spanish languages) in a couple of weeks and be free from the risk of terrorist attack to which a single language speaker is exposed.
There are online languages teaching programs through which you can learn other languages in the comfort of your own home by listening to well arranged conversational language tutorials such as Rocket Languages? It will pay you high dividend to be multi lingual, socially, in business or work. English, French, Spanish and German languages are the most popular business languages of the world today.
I want you to understand the basic idea of this article. It is to inform you of the need for you to learn to speak at least three major international languages, and also to let you know that you can repeat the feat you did as a baby in learning your mother tongue just by listening to a language that was utterly strange then, even stranger than the foreign languages you hear today but do not comprehend.
Finally, let me repeat that it should be easier now that you have grown up, to learn, understand and speak any foreign language in weeks, listening to conversational tutorials, just as you did to your mother tongue as a little baby. I recommend, if you are an English speaker to add French, Spanish and German languages to your lingual portfolio. If you don’t speak any of the above languages, make effort to learn to speak them now.
