How learning Languages ruined my Life

The privilege unashamedly highlighted on the title by themselves. What kind of results do you think you would get from searching “brown guy learning English so he could move to UK”?

Learning a new language is like wearing glasses for the first time.

Do you remember the feeling the first time you wore your new glasses? Or perhaps when you changed your camera’s lens, or used a new filter for your photos? You suddenly realised there was a new way of seeing the world.

Because ignorance isn’t Bliss.

In an age of an immense waves of information there is also growing mountains of ignorance. Ignorance is easy, we don’t need to change our glasses if we feel comfortable in it. It’s easy to consume what others have given us and want us to believe in. It’s so easy for us to defend our peace of mind and be “proud of their ignorance” (Quran 48:26).

“As our circle of knowledge expands, so does the circumference of darkness surrounding it.”
