This week we’re really lucky to have a guest post by the team at TakeLessons.
Approximately one language dies every two weeks. Most of the 7,000 languages spoken worldwide are dialects, however that doesn’t make them any less important. Languages are tied to the culture of those that speak them and should be regarded as just as necessary as the people themselves. Learning about individual languages can deepen your understanding and appreciation of the diversity in the world. It can even motivate you to travel or learn a new language yourself. (Apps like uTalk are great for that!) The infographic from TakeLessons has dozens of fascinating language facts that will intrigue and inspire you. Maybe you can help save an endangered language yourself.
