I write articles in my second language, but Philip Crowther covers the news in six languages.
Wow! I am deeply impressed.
A clip of an international affiliate correspondent for The Associated Press went viral this week. Crowther is reporting live from Ukraine.
But not only that, he does that in six different languages. Six!

It’s not surprising that there aren’t many journalists in Ukraine right now, as tensions seem to escalate into a military conflict. So, that’s already one good reason to respect the work of Crowther. We need journalists more than ever these days, and I am more than thankful for these brave people putting themselves at risk to keep us updated.
But let’s talk about languages.
How many languages do you speak? What helped you learn a language? How does speaking in a different language affect your way of thinking?
I am especially interested in reading perspectives from authors around the world.
We have authors from the United States, Canada, Australia, Europe, Latin America, South Africa, India, and many other places around the world in our community.
Let’s share our experiences and inspire each other.
May it be of benefit!
