An old joke: Q: What do you call a person who speaks many languages? A: Polyglot Q: What do you call a person who speaks three languages? A: Triligual Q: What do you call a person who speaks two languages? A: Bilingual Q: What do you call a person who speaks one language? A: American
In my opinion, learning another language is an important skill to have in order to be competitive in the global economy. To me, it also acts as an anti-aging technique because it’s keeping the brain active.
In addition to the resources that I covered in the post Resources for Learning a New Language on the Cheap, I found another FREE resource for learning a new language.
The Foreign Service Institute (http://www.state.gov/m/fsi/) provides language and cultural education for government personnel such as diplomats and foreign affairs personnel who need to learn another language to perform their job.
Luckily for us, the language courses are in the public domain, and they are free. You can get the documentation and audio for free from one of the following sites:
Note: In order for the course to “make sense”, you must read the documentation while you are listening to the audio files.
Tengo que continuar con mi lecciones. íHasta lluego!
