Oh boy, do we ever have a good one for you today…

You’ve probably heard the stereotype that Asians are better at math. Turns out, it’s actually a quantifiable fact. But it isn’t necessarily because American schools are terrible or because young American kids just don’t care. No, it goes much, much deeper than that. In fact, part of the reason is the very language that you’re reading this blurb in.

Today’s episode is all about linguistic relativity — the idea that your language can not only change how you communicate, but actually how you perceive the world and interact with it.

Give it a listen.
