Language does not make one a better person
Like anything, language is just another tool. It's how it is used that matters
What has life got to do with language?
You sure will enjoy life better if you can speak the language of the nation.
When in Rome......
Depends where they live really.
yeah and vice versa
Ask Japanese, Brazilians, Chinese, Indians, Arabs, Swedes, Germans, French , Italians.. and so on..
nope....that depends on the person on how he maneuver his life
Its what you do with what you have is all that matters and directly effects the outcome of your life.
I actually think that it would be quite enriching to know more than one language...
Exactly. I was just responding to his notion that an English-speaking person's life is somehow "better" just because they know the one language. Knowing more than one language is enriching no matter what the languages are.
