Thanks to Our Ancestors! December 15, 2006

“That is why it was called Babel –because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth” (Gen 11:9)

Thanks to our ancestors for their stupidity, we have now over 7000 languages in the world today. Perhaps this is a good thing for those who find learning languages fun!

The world is becoming a global village and this is a well-known phenomenon. The need to learn other languages is now greater than at any time in history. Being bilingual is just not enough. People nowadays strike to speak more than 2 languages in order to stay competitive in this society. In fact, it is not uncommon for me to find people around me who can speak 3 or 4 languages fluently.

Please let me know if you are in the process of learning a foreign language. Perhaps we can motivate each other.
