More language learning = less hating? We can hope.

I happened to listen to the latest The World in Words podcast yesterday. It’s about Arabic language learning in the U.S., and the bulk of it is about a Jewish day school where Arabic is taught by this charming young Arab Israeli fellow. A small, peripheral story, but it gives me hope for more cross-cultural understanding and less othering.

Americans need to learn more languages generally. Props to anyone who is learning Arabic. Or any other language, really, but especially Arabic now.
