The Magic Frog is an open source project with lofty goals .
I'm not claiming that @the-magic-frog will teach you or your child new languages but rather your contribution in writing stories and getting crypto is much more fun! 🤑
A number of studies show that an everyday practice of a new language is the best way to remember it. (Insert wisdom forming habit quote here 😜)
How many of you had French as a second language at school? What are you waiting for? I am inviting you to add your own "je ne sais quoi" flavor to the story of La Grenouille Magique and make yourself and your teacher proud! 💪
How open minded do wish our next generation to be?
Open mindedness creates peace on earth as Omniglot explains that language learning leads to acceptance and tolerance.
As you learn and begin to comprehend a new language, you also begin to understand the worldviews and how they are contained in practical systems of the language. Language, like we said before, is a foundation of cultural identity and development. Learning a foreign language and its associated culture leads to a more open-minded view of the world and its people.
Once you know and appreciate parts of a culture and its systems, you begin to judge less and observe more. Your mind begins to free itself of previously understood notions. You will learn that we’re all products of our specific culture. Seeing the world from a different perspective, and understanding where you and others come from, are priceless and valuable lessons in acceptance and tolerance.
Health benefits you say?
An article from the BBC even gives health benefits to the less young ones:
Multilingualism has been shown to have many social, psychological and lifestyle advantages. Moreover, researchers are finding a swathe of health benefits from speaking more than one language, including faster stroke recovery and delayed onset of dementia.
Speaking a second language may change how you see the world.
In this Science magasine article they explain how German speakers are likely to imagine where this woman is going and English speakers to focus on her journey, but bilinguals may be able to have it both ways. Isn't that amazing?
If you think so as well, you don't need to wait, our German version of story Der Zauberfrosch is ready for your point of view.
