Why Learn More Languages

I think you should learn more languages because then you can communicate with more people. It is good for talking to people if you go on holidays.

Why learn more languages?

I believe that languages are unique, valuable forms of art that should be treasured by all and spoken by many more.      

Learning languages keeps your mind healthy and active without you even realising it! Languages can be used for secret communication and even help you to gain a better understanding of your own native tongue.

 ”One language is never enough!”  I fully support this statement. I am 15 and have studied English, Irish, Spanish, Latin, and Japanese so far. I begin Russian next term and can’t wait! I own Harry Potter books in English, Irish, Latin and Spanish too- I?m slightly obsessed.

       
Finding a thrill in learning a new language is a special occurrance that can inspire generations to achieve their goals and build a better future whether it be at home or abroad, where life-long friends may be made and memories shared. A drive for learning languages is only the begining of an inspiring, captivating, and enlightening journey that opens doors to your future to new possibilities, opportunities, and discoveries and allows you to see the world in a whole new light.

“A different language is a different vision of life.” -Frederico Fellini

If you ever have the opportunity or desire to learn a new language, grasponto it and hold on tight because you never know what might unfold when your curiosity leads you down new breathtaking paths through the culture, music and literature of a country as you learn it’s ‘native tongue’.

Have Fun!

Why Learn Another Language?

?Eres sin hogar?? I?m sure we?ve all seen the Meteor ad where the protagonist is trying to impress a girl with his Spanish.  A hilarious but common situation where speaking the native language can be an advantage. But learning a new language isn?t just useful for tourists.

On a more serious note, many of us have found ourselves stranded in foreign city with what seems like an insurmountable language barrier. What would be more useful than to have even an elementary level of that language? We could succeed in getting our message understood, whether we are chatting to someone or ordering from a menu.

Now more than ever our generation is faced with the prospect of emigration, an extra language has never been more on demand. With a widely used language like Spanish or Mandarin you instantly expand your opportunities to study or work abroad.

Another initiative to take on another language is the intriguing fact that it improves your cognitive learning. Statistics show that taking on a second or third language improves your maths, and skills. So it won?t just be your languages you?ll be acing during exam time!

So, why learn another language? If I haven?t convinced you with my previous points I?ll borrow an old saying;

??If you can speak three languages you’re trilingual.  If you can speak two languages you’re bilingual.  If you can speak only one language you’re an American.??

Why Learn Another Language?

Knowing a broad range of languages is the foundation of a global understanding and unity between all of the different cultures.

In a world with many different nations and culture a  language is quite important for understanding purposes par exemple,If you were ever to go to Saudia Arabia, a country with such a traditional way of life.It would be hard to adapt and settle there because you wouldn’t understand anything. Learning a new language is much more important than it seems because it gives you an insight of the country.                                                                                                                        

I remember when I first started French in St.Raphaelas, I didn’t really know much about France apart from the fact they ate snails! but as the years progressed and I matured. I had become more knowledgeable about the life in France, such as how many words in English came from French words. Par exemple cafe and Omelette. I also know that France is quite influenced by sports e.g tour de france and le petanque.

Another advantage is that most countries are submerged in the recession, which has resulted in an increasing  un-employment rate. As most firms dont have the finance to employ people,knowing an extra european language, could be of a great benefit to you. As the companies could hire you because they could send you abroad to attend meetings and represent the firm in foreign affairs. So therefor  in my opinion it is an incentive  for people to be bilingual.

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. if you talkt to him in his own language that goes to his heart.” Nelson Mandela.

I hope by reading my blog and watching the clip you will invest some time into learning a new language. :)

Why Learn New Languages?

Why learn languages? In a nutshell because the world is so much bigger than YOU are, and as Galileo has proven the universe does not revolve around you .

We live in a new-age world where connectivity is key. People are constantly updating their social networking sites, or have their mobile on hand 24/7. We are a race entirely dependent on each other. And co-operation is best achieved with effective communication. Some would argue that Google Translate can do it all, and who needs to know a language these days? But taking the time, effort and energy to immerse yourself in someone else’s world is the biggest sign of respect you can show them.

I think too often we limit ourselves by saying “well I already speak English and French well, that’s me done.” But in my opinion we should never stop learning. If I can learn just one new word a day in a different language I will because it’s one more step to understanding a million more people.

I learn English, Irish, French and Russian. But by no means do I think that the only people worth listening to can speak one of those languages. In fact I’m sure if I could speak Khmer fluently I’d learn more from one Cambodian in a day than I’ve learnt from a single Irish person in my life because I know my culture and it surrounds me but to gain an insight into someone else’s on their terms? That’s the real gift of language learning. “It’s life Jim, but not as we know it.” As the Trekkie Mantra goes…

On a more down to Earth note companies and colleges will always appreciate those who can speak languages because to grasp one it takes determination, dedication and time. But I think when you learn a language it really opens up a means of communicating with the average Joe in St. Petersberg, who can’t use an online translator but who has the most beautiful way of thinking and seeing the world that you’d never consider without reaching out to them. That’s what I believe languages are about: seeking out new life, and new civilisations and boldly going where no mono-linguistic man has gone before.

Here’s our opinion :)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qdx1_9gfVsU

Why Learn More Languages?

?I speak English so I don?t have to speak a foreign language…? Is that the attitude you may have about learning another language? Some fail to acknowledge that only 1 in every 5 people can speak English to some level of competence. Therefore, why not learn more languages?

Before considering the advantages of learning another language, why should one invest their time doing so? Primarily because it adds culture to your life since ?language and culture go hand in hand.? It allows you to have a different vision of life and explore different cultures, a Czech Proverb says ?Learn a new language and get a new soul.?

In addition, your trip to another country will be greatly enhanced in both ease of communication and friendliness because speaking the language shows respect for that culture, and people in every country prefer it when tourists make an effort to speak the local language, even if all you can say in it is “hello” and “please.”

Speaking more than one language is a skill which will increase your marketability. While struggling for economic survival the competition for jobs in this global economy is ever increasing. Many companies and universities have worldwide links and I think it is a great invitation to have the opportunity to both travel and work or study  in a new and exciting environment. Why not go to Japan or France or any other country for a year or two after college or even with the Erasmus programme in college? Just think about it.
