The pros and cons of studying language
This cartoon is a bit outdated by now. January is the time for thinking about these things, not February. However, I could not post it in January, because— Oh, you probably all know why by now.
There are, of course, more pros, such as meeting like-minded people while studying languages. For many of us, this will actually be the first time that you meet other bookworms and literature-nerds and get the chance to sit in a class where no-one makes fun of you. But mostly, in this field, you are just going to have to learn how to cope without the respect of society. I wish I was more intimidating…
But I must love you and leave you now. Another con of studying language is the amount of reading and I still have to finish The Merchant of Venice before tomorrow afternoon. Yes, it really is a new Shakespeare every week. I’m not going to get enough sleep tonight.
Until next week and more complaining about homework then!
