Mount Tarvurvur in Papua New Guinea

Can you imagine a country in which 800 different languages are spoken?

What makes a region to have different tongues is isolation of the human groups. When we have different islands and different tribes which barely have contact among themselves, we get something as impressive as Papua New Guinea.

We are singing monkeys, believe it or not. Music is the essence of a language, and music is what really awakens our deepest feelings.

Well, that is true, but babies are always working, they’re always studying and learning.
