A bit of linguistics for your day?

TIME Europe - On language changes in Germany

I found this article very interesting, its talking about how the German government has changed its spelling system, hoping to provide a system that is easier to learn...
Already countries like Switzerland have attempted similar changes, It basically means that everyone needs to learn two languages. The current "proper" Spellings and the old style so that you can still communicate with everyone...

Anyway read the article,
