Inspired by The Hobbit and begun in 1937, The Lord of the Rings is a trilogy that J.R.R. Tolkien created to provide “the necessary background of history for Elvish tongues”. From these academic aspirations was born one of the most popular and imaginative works in English literature.

By the time I was in college, I could speak almost fluently and even carry on a conversation without sounding ridiculous. Who knew all the mental benefits of learning a new language?
