Learning a different language may be easy to some people while to others, it is frustrating. No two persons have the same ability in learning a different language because there are many factors that influence one’s learning. But before we go into that, let us first study the basics. What is language? Language is defined as arbitrary sounds and symbols structured in a conventional way and used by people with a shared culture in communication. Therefore it is arbitrary, a matter of convention, used in communication and can either be spoken, written and may also be gestures or signs.

The study of languages is called linguistics.
