Talk to me in a language I don't speak...♥


I find languages fascinating. How can there be so many in this world? and yet we are pretty much saying the same things, but in different languages. All the words & expressions that exist! "Why couldn't there be just one language?" mom says. Good question, but if there wouldn't be more than one , this world would be bland. No interesting cultures, and no new things to learn and discover and explore. Seeing other people speak their native languages so easily and me just trying to understand...leaves me with a question mark over my head and making me want to know what they are saying. So far I am currently trying to learn Italian on my own and then I would like to learn French too. That would make me be able to speak four languages! It's almost like exploring their country through their language or feeling like as if I were born there.

languages are beautiful indeed, i'm in love with them too :) sometimes i thought too, why isn't there only one language for everyone to speak. but that would be terribly boring. each language seems to say something about the people who live in the country where it's spoken. makes them have a very individual meaning :)

thank you so much for your comment dear <3

I couldn't agree more! Languages are such an amazing thing. I think a lot of us take for granted how beautiful our native tongues are so it's lovely that you wrote a post about appreciating them. :)
