G’day! Study has been a little slow this week, clipping off two days earlier this week for concluding last month’s Bengali study, and now transitioning to Tamil, at the moment revising on previous lessons for that language and preparing for the creation of mnemonic tools to help me study more efficiently.
I find all three languages, including Hindi, quite mellifluous, quite pleasant to the ear, and while not easy to learn without the drive to do so, fun and interesting in any event. Learning a language, to the extent of fully assimilating it, opens new paths of thought, to think in that language, to think in the patterns a native speaker would, and that’s part of my goal.
How will that affect my worldview?
I’ll have to post more on those things pertaining to all three languages I’ve learned so far, it’s just that I hate gratuitously showing off, but I also feel that I ought to put up or shut up…
One day I’ll be fluent in all three languages, maybe even in something approaching a native accent with each, but in the mean time it’s worth the effort to learn these languages even for their own sake.
May you always have clear skies and a heart for wonder, and as my alien Kai’Siri would say…
