The wonderful world of Rene Descartes

Descartes

When I was 14 years old, I was sitting in a classroom listening to some teacher rambling on a Dutch past tense and somethign rather interesting caught my eye. There was this big poster saying “Corgito ergo sum”. I knew a little latin, but my attention was moslty caught by football at that time. Let’s be honest, it still is. It was a quote by the philosopher Rene Descartes and I knew nothing about the man, except that he sounds like someone who would make cards. 10 years later I would be confronted with the blessing that’s called philosophy and I finally got to know Descartes.  Bekijk bericht

Languages are actually great. It’s true that sometimes they give us difficulties, because there are so many of them. But I do think it’s great that there’s such a variety of languages on this globe we call planet earth. We learn about different languages in school and/or from our families and friends, but some languages are on another level. This is where I get really interested in languages and linguistics. When it’s out of the ordinary. I guess that’s why I’ve been and am so attracted to the Welsh language
Cymraeg. Bekijk bericht
