I don’t think my huge love of musicals is shared by… any of my friends (yes – I have friends 😉 ). I tend to think that it’s somewhat cultural – most of the musicals I know originated in the Anglo-Saxon world. In the past, I think it’s safe to say that not so many people spoke English, much less understand the humour or culture. I also firmly believe that speaking languages doesn’t only open doors to verbal communication, but gives individuals the opportunity to expand their horizons. So – as our understanding of the world progresses with hands-on experience – how much do our tastes actually change? Do you think there is a changing cultural acceptance in our society?
This is a string of thoughts taken from REDDIT – a go-to place for conversations where people share opinions. I highly recommend it for language learners. Enter – participate (unanimously)! That is the homework suggestion to go with this article.
