Reasons to Learn A Foreign Language

Learning a foreign language takes time and effort. Some people can learn a foreign language more easily than others. New technology makes learning a second language more flexible and easier because you can learn it anywhere you like; in your car while trapped in a traffic jam, while waiting for a commuter to arrive or fishing at the lake. It can be learned through many types of medium such as cassette, CD and the Internet where you will find good resources for foreign language lessons.

The following are just a few reasons why you should learn another language:

A. First reason â Eliminate the language barrier that you may face. Make it easier for you to deal with other people when you go traveling or working in another country. Most native people probably do not know how to speak English fluently or do not know it at all. Knowing some key phrases will help you a lot. Moreover, you will know what people around you are talking about while you are shopping, waiting for a taxi or having dinner at a restaurant.

B. Local people tend to be friendlier to you if you speak the same language they do. You also can make friends easily, which in return can help you greatly in dealing with certain troubles that you may encounter, such as problems related to local laws. Locals also will believe you more than people who cannot speak their language. That is very important when you are traveling.

C. Knowing a foreign language really helps when you are lost in a remote area where you can only find people who can speak the local language.

D. Knowing the language will help you understand the exotic local traditions and way of life. This priceless experience is absolutely an opportunity not to be missed by anyone who loves to travel. You can share beautiful moments having fun with locals in their special occasions while understanding the meaning behind their customs.

E. Learning a foreign language will improve your memory skills resulting from the process of reading, learning and memorizing. You will exercise your brain and use functions that may have been lying dormant for years. You will be surprised how easily those processes can be revived.

F. According to Kwintessential, people who learn a foreign language are wealthier, happier and are regarded sexier than those who can speak only English. Also, a survey conducted in Britain involving 270 dating agencies shows that people who speak or learn a foreign language are more attractive, intelligent and sexier to the opposite sex.

These reasons should give you some ideas of how valuable it is to learn an additional language. Continuous learning for life leads to success and wisdom.

The best second language to learn would probably be whatever language is most often spoken in and around you and the area where you live. If, say, there were more Spanish speaking people then you would probably choose to learn how to speak Spanish. The most important thing is just to pick one and start. You will be glad you did.
