About Altair

Nothing is as rich as language. For what is communication without the power of bringing the message across through the very words we speak. This blog is all about describing the beauty, diversity, misconception, evolution and anything about language. As the world changes, so does language. The need to learn and acquire the skills of speaking different languages is now the new in. Monolingualism is out of the loop and other languages are competing for resources.
