Now, I do believe that there is no point in learning a foreign language if you don't plan to immerse in that culture or at least be in touch with it. Why? Because once you stop using it for a while, you lose it. You wasted so much time of your life just so you can brag that you know a language you'll never use inreal life. Moreover, I do believe that English and Spanish are the easiest languages you can learn. For the Europeans living within the former Roman empire borders, it's quite easy to learn Italian, French and Spanish or even Portuguese (but with a little bit of struggle). I don't agree that it's not worth it to learn a language if you're not going to use it in that language's culture. There have been studies that show how the process of learning new languages actually causes positive changes in your brain that can have a lot of benefits, even if you don't remember the language forever. For one thing, once you have those connections in your brain, it allows you to learn languages more easily in the future. It also helps you with things like critical thinking and abstract problem solving. Definitely not a waste of time. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
