If English is your first language and you learn another language you will never experience the beauty of it unless you’ve lived in the country where it’s spoken. Without a language we wouldn’t be able to form ideas, opinions, think, solve problems, and communicate. When you learn another language you are simply translating it from your own, essentially not learning anything new. But growing up in another country or living there would teach you words, their different meanings and concepts a school could never explain to you because you wouldn’t live it or experience it first hand. When we think, we are basically talking to ourselves so to describe something in an elaborate way through not only words but the concepts and ideas where these words have been used will add a different perspective.
