Why Can’t Everyone Speak the Same Language?

Our kids have fallen in love with listening to podcasts at bedtime. In fact, they’ve become an essential part of our evening routine. Bathe, brush your teeth, grab your blanky, and cuddle up with digital transmissions of audible education. Vermont Public Radio’s But Why: A Podcast For Curious Kids is one at the top of our list, alongside Brains On and Wow in the World. These are some of the best podcasts for kids.

Seeing as language and all things linguistical are quite close to our hearts, we were delighted when But Why took time to respond to the question, Why are there so many languages in the world? No surprise that this question featured in But Why‘s frequently asked questions episode. We won’t spoil it for you. Instead, gather the whole family together and head on over to take a listen. No need to wait until bedtime.
