Learning a foreign language adds variety and flavor to your life. You begin to see the world through eyes in addition to your own. For example, take the word, self-control. In Spanish, it is called auto-dominio, (domination of oneself). Analyzing the Spanish version of this word adds dimension to your existing understanding of the concept of self-control. And to think, this is just one example.

Experts know that at one time humans spoke one language, and did indeed have one set of words. This one original language was a parent to other languages. Because there are commonalties to languages, languages share traits and belong to certain families; for instance, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and Romanian. These languages belong to a family called the Romance languages and learning one of them makes it easier to learn another.
