Language learning might seem difficult, especially if we would like to speak a tongue fluently. But, it brings benefits to young and old, so one is never too old to learn a language and to enjoy the opportunities it opens up. If we can speak the language very well, or even if we only know a few words of a foreign language, this enables us to make new friends and contacts with foreigners. Learning other peoples' languages is a way of helping us understand each other better, beat the most rooted stereotypes, and overcome our cultural differences. Language skills are extremely necessary and a right for everyone – that is one of the main messages of the European Day of Languages. Oh, what a nice message!
