This time on ‪#‎TheScienceInside‬ we talk language following the #OpenStellenbosch protests.

Which language would you learn if you could pick any one? Tell us below.

Polyglot Elliot Conway tells us what it’s like to speak lots of languages.

We hear about what happens in your brain when you learn a new language, and what exactly language fuzziness means with Helia Jordaan and Leketi Makalela.

Dr Kim Balmach tells us what nation building has to do with language.

We also take a look at the group psychology behind the protests at Stellenbosch University with Dr Ramodungoane Tabane.

Remember you can download all of #TheScienceInside to listen whenever you want!
