  1. There are a lot of benefits to learning a new language. Another benefit of learning a new language, is it increasing your brain's capacity. It also helps with decreasing the likeliness of you getting dementia.
  2. I find motivation for learning by trying to remember why I was trying to learn what ever it is in the first place. If you remember exactly why you are doing something, or pushing yourself so hard to do something you will almost always succeed.
  3. These are some very interested facts. Wasn't that funny though, but they were still cool. Some of them I already knew about, or at least I think I did. My favorite one was "More English words begin with the letter "s" than with any other letter".
  4. Very good post, and very informative. I can understand how the internet is beating the whole purpose of actually having to learn a new language. I can relate and understand.
  5. I just watched my friend use Siri today, and it was pretty cool. It recognizes a lot, but there are things or words that Siri just can't pick up. Other than that flaw, Siri is a pretty good app, and it looks very efficient as well.
  6. I plan on learning about 3 different languages for the future. As we get older, learning new languages will start to make a difference and it will also be very beneficial to your future success.
  7. I think as the world expands, so will languages. I think languages will expand as the world gets bigger. Languages are expanding at a very fast pace, and will continue to do so for a long time , especially in the future.
  8. It depends on the accents, and yes I find it a little funny. Mimicking accents is kind of funny in my opinion, depending on the accent that is trying to be spoken. I mean it also depends on the person mimicking as well, because it has to be someone that is actually funny lol.
  9. I think body language differs between cultures, but I don't think there is a big difference. I think it really does not change up too much, but I do think there are some noticeable differences that you would be able to recognize.
  10. I think there are plenty of good languages that would be beneficial to the future. Some of these languages include Spanish, French, and English. They are all great languages that will most likely be used in the future and would be great to learn.
  11. I think pronunciation is my favorite difference in language. I mean every language has almost the same words, they just have different ways of pronouncing them, and speaking them. That is really the only difference in my opinion.
  12. I actually love slang, even though I am a strictler over proper English. I love the idea of slang, because it gives you a great alternative to speaking a language in a certain way. When using slang it makes everything easier or at least in my opinion.
  13. I think the best way to stay sharp when you are not taking classes, is to study and do a lot of practicing. The quickest way to practice, is to stay on top of it, and make sure you are getting everything you need to help you study efficiently.
  14. I would say that most countries have become more english friendly. I mean there are so many countries in the world that speak English now. It really is if English has taken over. I mean it spreads so quickly and it becomes a universal language, or at least in my opinion.
  15. The most languages spoken by one person I know is 4. There was this teacher that taught me Spanish who happened to speak 4 languages. One of the other languages she spoke was French. It was pretty interesting.
