1. Learn a second language to get ahead in business
If you’re a business owner, or work for a business which trades internationally, being able to communicate with your partners, suppliers or customers in their own language is a unique selling point for your business.
I used to have a Swiss born boss who was fluent in French. All of our French clients wanted to deal exclusively with him for the simple reason he spoke French. He did great business and won many contracts on the back of his fluency.
2. Learn a second language to enjoy better holidays
If you’re planning on travelling, you might assume that everyone in your chosen country will understand you. However, if you want to experience the culture of a specific place, then it is well worth delving a little further into the country, culture and language. Imagine, for example, you go to Spain. If you speak the language, you can travel a little off the beaten track, out of the usual tourist areas, and experience true Catalan culture, by asking the locals, in their own language, the best places to eat, and visit. You’ll also be treated better for making the effort.
3. Learn a second language to understand a culture – perhaps your own
Another reason for learning languages would be if your family tree originated in a country, which was far away from where you currently are. In order to view your family tree, you might need to delve deep into the history of a foreign country and read documents in a foreign language to better understand your roots.
