7 Reasons to Learn Languages

Global Citizenship

Language skills help us identify with humanity, not just as citizens of a nation or residents of a place.

Travel

When exploring our own country or traveling abroad, language knowledge increases the authenticity of experiences and fosters spontaneous conversation.

Cultural Enrichment

Appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of music, movies and stories from around the world. Translations can rarely be true to the intent, beauty style and uniqueness of the original work.

Employment

Learning languages enhances skills that assist in a variety of career paths, at home and abroad.

Friendship

Speaking other languages and embracing other cultures can connect you with people from around the world.

Lifelong Learning

Once a person has learned a second language, the acquisition of additional languages is much easier.

Because we can!

Have you ever met someone who regrets having learned another language?
