It is always good to be reminded of the wonders of learning a new language!

1. Travel the world and make friends for life!

Have you ever been in a foreign country and didn’t speak the language? You know, when you met those awesome people in that small village only to be disappointed because you couldn’t properly communicate with them? Some of the best people aren’t hanging out in the big cities. Learning a new language will help you break through cultural barriers when you’re travelling and you might just meet your best friends!

2. Get the job of your dreams!

Direction to dream job

In such a globalised and interconnected world, more and more employers are searching for people who know languages… You don’t want to lag behind, do you? Maybe you’re just one step away from your dream job! Even if you run your own business, it’s important to speak languages to communicate with possible investors, partners, you name it!

Cultural encounters

Are you a culture enthusiast? Remember how you never understood why Latin people hug each other so much or why the English just love to talk about the weather? Well, you don’t have to be an outsider anymore. Learning a new language will allow you to connect with other cultures from the inside.

Learning a new language is a challenge, which means that it feels amazing when you start getting things right or when you’re finally able to order that chocolate muffin in the local language when you’re travelling. Challenges keep us going and they make us strive to be better!

AND guess what…

5. Become smarter!!! 

Brain activity

Yes, that’s right! Many physiological studies have shown that learning new languages improves your cognitive skills. By challenging your brain to decipher and recognise meaning you become better at other problem-solving skills too. And not just that! You even have lower chances of developing Alzheimer’s and dementia! Now beat that!
