In the News: How language separates us from the chimps

Do you ever wonder how freaking cool it is that you can turn puffs of air into sound waves? Not only that, but you can use those puffs of air to make someone smile or laugh or maybe even love you? Certainly it's not a normal thought that crosses our minds, but Mark Pagel makes a living of it with his study of language evolution. Mr. Pagel believes that one day we will speak a single universal language, but until then, learning new languages will remain pivotal for international cooperation. Click "read more" to check out his Ted talk.

In today's world, language skills open new doors and allow us communicate with different cultures and people that see world through a different lense. With it we have become the dominate species on this planet shaping our world with our own imagination and vision. If you want to separate yourself from your fellow homo sapiens we at Easy Languages offer language immersion programs around the world. Browse what we have to offer or shoot us an email, we'd love to hear from you.
