What makes humans different from other animal species? One key aspect, which can be called out is our ability to conversate. Our language has become the basis of all our conversations and all-around developments. One might say, it is the key to our world. And now, with the world being connected and growing virtually closer, people are moving towards learning everything they can, especially other cultures and their values.
