There are 7 000 languages spoken in the world.
There are 40 million people in the world that cannot see the written word but can hear and sense the language.
There are 70 million people in the world that cannot hear the spoken word but can see and feel the language.
There are 7 000 languages spoken in the world that we need to preserve. And there are at least two more that we should learn how to use. Close your eyes and feel the language, enjoy it by hearing it. Cover your ears and look at the world, read the language. Enjoy the languages. The feeling is different but idea is the same: Languages matter! And their variety becomes even greater if we can feel them, hear them, sense them, read them and make other people understand them.
