Me and learning languages
For my primary and secondary studies, I used two languages that I have mastered well and that I use to this day. For my higher (university) studies I did them with a third language that has served me well during my professional life, has allowed me to travel to many countries around the world, and now I use to surf easily through the web. Learning languages pays off in the long run.
