The Benefits of Learning a Second Language

There are many benefits associated with learning a second language.  Here are a few:

  • Career opportunities in the modern world. Employers and businesses are seeking candidates who are best suited to navigate the modern, global marketplace. Knowledge of another language and sensitivity to other cultures is key.
  • Grow your brain! Studies show that the complex process by which we learn languages can increase the volume of white and grey matter in the brain which in turn boosts other skills including problem-solving, focusing, improved memory (short and long-term), flexible and creative thinking. 
  • Cultural understanding: one of the essential elements of learning a language is understanding the different cultures that speak it. Cultural insight gives you the chance to travel, immerse yourself, meet new people, and improve your intercultural understanding in the workplace.
