What I like the most about learning a new language is that you not only learn how to communicate with a big group of people but also about their cultures, places, and inevitably start seeing the world from a unique perspective. That is specifically why I like TED talks, I can practice my listening skills while learning about important topics explained by very interesting people.
In this article, I want to share with you 3 TED talks that I have enjoyed very much, first because of the interesting topics and second because it showed me how beautiful is the Spanish language, its different accents and how much it changes within the country you are from.
