Start learning a new language today!

4 Jun

Yesterday, I blogged about the mounting evidence that second language learning, even for adults, may reduce the risk of dementia. I have also suggested that Esperanto is an ideal candidate for new language learners. Recently, Benny The Irish Polyglot has been filming his girl friend’s attempts to learn that language.

Here is his explanation of the project:

 

“Since I’m too busy on my book tour and maintaining my languages this year to learn a new language, she said that she would love to get into language learning herself. Thinking long-term though, I highly recommended that she start with Esperanto. It also turns out that a group of other people are learning Esperanto at the same time, with the deadline of the polyglot conference in Berlin, so we ran with that idea!”
