A thought just came up – if we could buy and simply upload languages to our heads, which ones would I go with? I would definitely probably go with Japanese, French and Portuguese, as well as Armenian first. These are the languages I would like to be able to speak, but I don’t have time resources to learn yet.
And then a second thought came up – maybe people who speak many languages are so impressive to monolinguals because we all know that languages can’t be bought. And you don’t need to go to an expensive school in order to learn a language well – you just need passion, motivation, a good internet connection and an open heart and mind. I feel that in our materialistic world it is important to pursue something that you can’t just buy, you have to work hard for it.
