Do you ever look at languages as more than just words?
In day-to-day life, probably not. But language goes beyond what’s being said:
- It’s about culture
- It’s about compassion
- It’s about understanding
- It’s about creating a connection
All of which we try to do every day here at Debonair HQ. And in every: workplace, home and school we visit. It takes much more time and effort to think of language this way, but it’s worth it in the long run.
Just like everything else in life, right?
Now, I want to teach you how to think a little more like we do, and go beyond the words that are being spoken. Because – whether you’re a small business, a multinational corporation or a language interpreter – there is nothing more important than how you interact with the people you meet.
In this article you’ll find five of my favourite infographics on language that will show you:
- How to choose a language to learn
- The science of how language affects your brain
- How to spot what someone is saying with their body
- Ways to use colours to connect beyond languages
- Wonderful water cooler facts (There’s a town in Argentina that only speaks Welsh!)
If you’re ready, strap in. Because you’re about to learn a lot of new information:
