It's not too late to pick up a new language--even as adults, if we learn a second or third language, it can have brain benefits later in life!
A new study in Annals of Neurology suggests an additional language may have brain benefits comparable to physical fitness and not smoking.

Lionbridge provides interpreters in the Wenzhou dialect! And many more!
When I tell other Chinese people that I am originally from Wenzhou, I usually get two replies. One, your family must be rich; two, your dialect is basically a foreign language.

Did you know that there are 287 languages that have a Wikipedia, but only 9 of them have more than a million articles? (There are 5 languages that only have one article!) Did your language make the cut?

"It is only through understanding their language that we can hope to get close to understanding how people think. Knowledge of another language enriches us far beyond helping us get rich."
Promoting language learning on the basis of its practical benefit alone just won't wash: we need to appeal to the heart as well as the head.

Parlez-vous français? Forbes says it's the language of the future!
For many centuries, France was the official language of culture, and erudition. It was the language of diplomacy and arts. Aristocrats in Imperial Russia spoke French, even amongst themselves, as Tolstoy and many others documented. In short, if you wanted to be educated, you had to speak French. Things have changed [...]

Beltrán says every MLB team should have to have at least one Spanish interpreter available. Lionbridge could help with that!
Beltrán founded in Puerto Rico includes an English-language curriculum, but the outfielder stressed, there is so much more that Major League Baseball could do.

Happy Easter and Passover to those who celebrate! Did you know the two holidays share linguistic roots?

Although the English term Easter comes from Ēastre, the name given to a goddess celebrated in the spring equinox, in many other languages the term used to designate Easter, the Christian holiday, shares the derivation of the Jewish name for Passover. The origin of this coincidence is that both celebrations occur in the same period and both celebrate a passage, to the Promised Land and from winter to spring.

Hebrew: Passover פסח (Pesach)
French: Pâques from the Latin Pascha or Hebrew Pesach (passage)
Portuguese: Páscoa from the Latin Pascha or Hebrew Pesach (passage)
Spanish: Pascua from the Latin Pascha or Hebrew Pesach (passage)
Italian: Pasqua from the Latin Pascha or Hebrew Pesach (passage)

Wow! Strong opinion piece posted on Time magazine's site says Americans don't value big vocabulary words anymore. What do you think?
