When I look back at middle school (where my daughter is now), I remember wanting to learn a language and at the time, I wanted to learn French. While I got the chance to use it many years later when I traveled to Paris, looking back now I’m thinking I wish I could have learned the language of rivers. After all, I work and live near the biggest one in the United States, the mighty Mississippi.
So what is the language of rivers you ask? Well, the best way to answer that question is with these two articles, “Learning the Language of Rivers, Part 1: A History of Confusion and “Learning the Language of Rivers, Part 2: The Basics” over at the Rosetta Stones blog on the Scientific American website. They’ll be a test afterwards.
