    >>I don't think you are right. Languages are just expression of the mind, it cannot open your mind. Thinking of becoming wise while staying at such material things is a mistake to me.

    dude, it's been proven in studies, people with more than one language under their belt have a better perspective. It's that simple, learning what other cultures call things, how they represent ideas can do nothing but expand your perception. Being tied to one language limits your perspective in those ways.

    wtf did you just say?
    PHP and XML
