Global Citizen Year Series: Language Learning Changed My Life

Meet Lindsay Saligman, Fellow at Global Citizen Year, and watch her video to hear highlights from her experience in Ecuador’s Amazon region.

Global Citizen Year Series: My Language Experience Thus Far

By Regina Markert – One of my personal heroes is Heinrich Schliemann. If you don’t know who he is, he was a man who mastered over 20 languages in his life. How does one begin to do that? There’s a story of Schliemann traveling to Sweden and speaking to the natives with ease when he got off the boat—even though he had never studied or heard the language before his journey. After hearing about Schliemann, I decided that mastering languages was by far the coolest superpower there is. I’d rather be able to speak Japanese than to fly, or be…
