Terrible el mapa sobre la capacidad, incapacidad mejor dicho, de comunicarse en inglés en España. El 78% de la población es incapaz de comunicarse con una buena parte del mundo. Si no puedes hablar con alguien, ¿cómo puedes saber lo que piensa, lo que siente?
Léxico no es una acumulación de palabras. Eso es un diccionario. Léxico son las palabras que te permiten comunicarte con los demás. Y los demás no son solo los que te rodean. No hay nada más bonito que aprender de los que son diferentes. Nunca aprenderás tanto sobre tí como cuando te ves a través de los ojos de los demás.
