Learning a language at an early age...

*Has a positive effect on intellectual growth.

*Enriches and enhances a child's mental development.

*Leaves students with more flexibility in thinking, greater sensitivity to language, and a better ear for listening.

*Improves a child's understanding of his/her native language.

*Gives a child the ability to communicate with people s/he would otherwise not have the chance to know.

*Opens the door to other cultures and helps a child understand and appreciate people from other countries.

*Gives a student a head start in language requirements for college.*Knowing a second language helps build trust, increases business and social opportunities where knowing another language is a real asset, opens up new worlds, provides personal enrichment, enhances credibility and is an advantage when hiring decisions are made.

Language graduates...

*Lower unemployment rates than for nearly any other subject, including Computer Science, Engineering and Business Studies

*The shortage of languages teachers in schools is partly because there are better paid and more attractive jobs for linguists elsewhere

*Over 80% of languages graduates go into jobs that most people would not connect with languages, such as the wealth-creating, private sectors of business services, wholesale and retail sales and finance, manufacturing, transport and communications.

*Languages graduates are often employed because their experience in language learning has helped them develop generic skills – such as analytical thinking and personal organization – which give them an edge against other graduates.

*Employers value the skills in intercultural communication and experience of other countries which languages graduates have.

Travel and leisure...

Think of the chances opened to you in the world of travel as a speaker of another language.  You will be a more confident traveler in the places where your second or additional language is spoken and you will gain a lot more from travel since you will be able to communicate with local people.

Other cultures will open up...

When you learn another language, you are able to get an insight into that language’s culture.  You also get to see your own culture from a new perspective.  To be able to connect with another culture – through books, newspapers, TV, websites and, of course, through conversations, can give you a lot of pleasure. And you can share your own culture with others in their native language.  A new world of connection and understanding will be open to you. It helps you to improve your skills in your native language, as it teaches you to understand the structure of both languages by comparing them. Someone who speaks very well is always more respected and likely to be a leader.

Whichever language you choose to learn, learning a second language is an enriching and rewarding experience!
