Creative Clinic 26: Speak Another Language
Speaking another language, other than your native one, not only opens up more people you can talk to, but it also changes the structure of your brain. People who speak multiple languages are great at being creative as they can pull on the different ways of seeing things that comes with learning a different language.
You don’t just learn a language but you also get an insight into how the culture that speaks that language operates.
If you have the opportunity to live abroad then I recommend you push your fears aside and grab the opportunity with both hands. Yes, there will be scary, lonely moments of “oh my what have I done?” But then you will see and hear different ways of doing things, a different way of living, and by accepting and adapting to your new environment will open your brain to many creative opportunities that are there to be taken.
