Lo lindo y lo “no tan lindo” de que se hablen tantos idiomas en el mundo





¿Te has puesto alguna vez a pensar en las ventajas y desventajas de la diversidad idiomática en el mundo?
A continuación, te planteo dos argumentos distintos que me han dado dos personas y que a mí me ayudaron a reflexionar sobre el tema.
Luego de leer estas opiniones, te invito a que, si tienes una postura distinta o quieres aportar algún otro motivo de los que aparecen aquí, me los hagas saber!

Acá van:

Lo “no tan lindo” de que se hablen tantos idiomas en el mundo: porque le quita dinamismo y fluidez a una conversación, hace que no nos podamos entender, hace que muchas veces pasen desapercibidas tantas cosas, tantos detalles. Porque funciona muchas veces como una gran barrera para la comunicación. Porque visto desde el lado práctico, no es cómodo para el cerebro.


Lo lindo de que se hablen tantos idiomas: porque le da dinamismo y fluidez a una conversación, hace que nos podamos entender con señas, gesticulaciones, y que nos las tengamos que ingeniar para que los otros comprendan lo que queremos decir. Porque hace que muchas veces pasen desapercibidas tantas cosas (para mejor). Porque es un entrenamiento permanente para el cerebro.
Porque le da particularidad y riqueza cultural e histórica a un lugar, porque cada idioma trae detrás una forma de vivir la vida, colores, olores, imágenes, sabores, idiosincrasia. Porque cada idioma es una manera de ver el mundo, de pensar y ordenar la realidad, de entender la vida.
Porque sería muy aburrido si no existiesen más los diversos idiomas de este mundo y todos habláramos el mismo idioma.
El idioma, los acentos, los modismos hacen que cada persona, cultura, paisaje o lugar sea aún más especial. Cada idioma aporta una visión del mundo y si hubiera sólo uno se perdería la diversidad.

¡Que genial sería poder hablarlos todos!, ¿No?

Y tú, ¿de qué lado estás?

Currently teaching: *Children (4- 10) : beginners, intermediate levels *Adults (18+) : beginners, intermediate, advance levels and conversational spanish Hi everyone! I’m Flavia Ayelén from Argentina. I graduated from the University of Rosario with a master’s degree in applied psychology but transitioned to working full time as a professional Spanish teacher. After I graduated from college, I began to travel around the world, taking all sorts of different jobs and embedding myself, as best I could, as a “local” in many distinct cultures. To help pay the bills, I also began teaching Argentina’s own, special version of Spanish – it has a very particular, unique accent that people seemed to love – imagine what an Italian person might sound like if they were to speak Spanish! In my years of teaching, I’ve developed a serious passion for my newfound profession. It’s not just about grammar or conversation or pronunciation – all all those things are important – but also the lively exchange of different cultures, customs and traditions. In every class I find myself learning as much I am teaching! For all of you struggling to learn – or even master – a new language, I am right there with you. In fact, I’m sure I’ve been through many of the same experiences! When I started this journey, I could barely speak a word of English despite years of classroom English where we would just drill grammar. In the real world, whether it was Australia, the United States, England, or New Zealand, I was scared to even say hello, and would freeze if someone on the street asked me even the most basic question. I could barely muster the courage to order a coffee in English! But I pushed through the fears and persevered until I reached fluency. I teach Spanish using the same methods and practices I developed to achieve fluency in English. I won’t lie to you. The path to mastering a foreign language is not easy! but with a little bit of grit, dedication, passion and fun mixed in, we can get there together!
