Spreading the Word: Languages and Thinking

This Friday I share with you a very interesting short video on the relationship between languages and thinking. The speakers are discussing their views based on experience and on research evidence as to whether we think differently in different languages. Personally, I am certain that we do. That’s why speaking foreign languages is like putting on various glasses through which to look at the world. Enjoy! Link to the video: Do we think differently in different languages?

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Friday, I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling. My Fridays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
