Some very interesting reasons for why you should learn a language

So why learn a language?
Here in the United Kingdom languages are not regarded as important as they should be. Many people decide to end their language studying before reaching any level of fluency, unfortunately this means that a lot of British people miss out on the benefits of language.

Improve your employment/studying potential
Learn a language and you will see that you open doors to several more areas of employment and study. Today's competitive society calls for people with a knowledge of languages for use in international trade and business. Still studying? or planning on studying? a second (or third, fourth etc.) language is always useful in broadening your prospects, your studies may even take you abroad.
Think of your new language as a means of widening your horizon!

Increase your proficiency in your own language
When you learn a new language, you learn about how the language works, interestingly this gives you a greater understanding of how your native language works. You immerse yourself in the depths of different kinds of grammar and learning, and use methods which could possibly even be transferred into your day to day life.
Enjoy a wider range of media

When you learn a new language, you open a doorway to a far greater range of literature, music and art which would otherwise have little or no meaning to you. You can gain a greater understanding of international pop-culture simply through learning new languages!
