Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas 2018
Debate, discussion and discourse at the Edinburgh Fringe
Ditch the Classroom; Speak in Tongues!
Everybody believes that education is good: the more, the better. But what if the benefits of education are mainly due to having learned different languages? Shouldn’t we just concentrate on learning them? In a rapidly changing world in which factual knowledge becomes quickly out-of-date, aren’t languages the ultimate transferable skill, improving the way in which we can learn and understand new things? Whether you learn one of the big languages of culture, politics and business or one of the little known minority ones, it will not only open a new world for you but also train your brain.
(The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas programme runs from 03-26 August 2018. Check out the full programme below!)
