I just had to ask. How do you define languages? Until recently, when I
was in a crowd of people familiar with computers, I felt I was hearing a
foreign language. Today, I can speak the lingo myself--although I will
confess that my vocabulary is still growing. I do feel that I have moved
beyond infancy.

In a very real sense, each culture, including work-place or academic
cultures, has its own language. Would the ability to communicate in more
than one also qualify as the ability to speak a foreign language? I would
argue that yes, it does make one more intelligent--if only because it
opens doors to understandings that one would otherwise never realize.
