Do I Really Need to Learn this? — 1 Comment

  1. I think this also begs the question of: how much do you actually want to respect the language that you’re learning? If you only learn a portion of it, then I see it as the equivalent of saying you don’t want to take the time to invest in a part of the language’s identity. Each part is a muscle and they all work together. Each part is interwoven into the culture that surrounds (and builds) the language. Neglecting to understand one part neglects the culture too. Why learn a language only partly, when you gain so much more overall understanding by learning all parts?
