PRACTICING THE NEW TONGUE

From the January 1964 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Students of linguistics find that the very atmosphere and distinctiveness of a nation's thought and disposition are often revealed through its speech. They are taught too that the most successful method of mastering another language is to learn as soon as possible to think in that language rather than to decide in one's own tongue what one wants to say and then translate it word for word into the other.
