That made me think about my own experience at language exchanges… I started running them because, after years living abroad, I wanted to keep the languages I had learned and, for me, the only way is by practicing regularly. But I realized that I was not only practicing languages, but also creating new groups of friends (for myself and for many other people).
Socializing is a very good reason to participate, although there are many other reasons that would encourage anyone! Do you know that learning languages has many benefits? For example, it has been shown that dementia is less likely to occur if you are bilingual. In addition, it is proven that people who speak two or more languages are better at multitasking and that IQ increases with each language we learn.
So, if you still doubted whether to start participating in these kind of events, there are many more reasons to do so than you thought.
Would you like to socialize? Would you like to speak other languages fluently? Would you like to increase your IQ? Follow this link!
