When you were at school it was always said that learning a second language would be a vital skill.
This fell on deaf ears for most of the people I knew at school, and I suppose that is true for a lot of people in the UK given that English is most peoples’ first language.
British people can be quite ignorant of the usefulness of a second language because we know that most people will speak English when we go abroad.
But should we be so high and mighty when it comes to learning a second language?
The answer is – absolutely not.
The benefits of a second language
What you heard at school is true. The ability to learn a second language really can open up an infinite number of options for you to explore.
We live in a gloabalised world, so the person who can speak different languages is going to have the upper hand on those who cannot.
As well as making travel easier should you go down that route, you can make yourself an invaluable asset to a business that is looking to expand its operations into more than one country.
You can be the conduit that drives companies together and allows proper and effective communication.
