Go Bilingual, Young Man!
A word of encouragement to young people. If you can learn a foreign language now while you're young, you will have a tool with which you can bless people for the rest of your life. Being bilingual is an incredibly handy skill in today's world, just like knowing how to drive, type, ride a bike, or swim. You can use a second language both to make money and to make disciples. When you get old like me you won't have nearly as many spare minutes or spare brain cells. I wish I had spent more time learning languages when I was a teen and less time playing chess, reading fiction, and studying calculus.
