I find the English language on its own, inadequate, for full intellectual reasoning development of the Human Being.
The English language is a creative construct of our own, designed for control and trade purposes mostly.
Those of us restricted to the English language, will need to do other learning/studies/extensions of their own, to extend our mental faculties, IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE the equivalent intellectual reasoning ability naturally created by another language.
Sure English is a common language of trade now. Sure English is a very useful language to bond and share with many around the globe! It is a brilliant invention of ours for a written language and was designed with that strongly in mind at the time of the printing press.
But, for speaking it falls short.
If you are of English origin, learn another language!
Or, make sure it is as a second, third or more language, with pride of place given to your original ‘home language’.
Get your little ones to speak their home language ‘at home’, to keep their brain smart! : )
