How to Cultivate a Child's Interest in Foreign Language - Ramsey Pryor

In Chapter 3 of 22 of his 2010 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, international Internet product management executive Ramsey Pryor shares how his mother identified and then cultivated his interest in foreign language. Learning language came naturally to young Pryor. Seeing this, his mother nurtures the interest by providing immersive learning experiences. She makes sure Pryor spends time around a native Spanish speaker and also encourages her son to take an abroad trip to Spain while in high school. Over time, Pryor finds learning language opens doors to culture and education. After winning high school awards in language contests, Pryor gets admitted to Northwestern University. While there he studies abroad in Spain, where he returns later to earn an MBA at IESE.
