3Foreign Language studies began at age four when we lived in the Province of Quebec, Canada, and attended a French school.  Our classroom  teacher spoke French, and no English. 
 
Our mom speaks to us in English, French, Spanish, and Arabic.   I've also learned basic Sign language.  We studied Italian to help with our music training.  We studied Greek & Latin roots, pre-fixes and suffixes to help us with English, Music, and Science.  See the links below for languages.

                                         "The safest general characterization 
                                      of the European philosophical tradition
                               is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato" 
                                         A. N. Whitehead, Process and Reality, 1929
