Have you ever thought about studying in a foreign country? Perhaps you do know another language but are not aware of the benefits. Although English is the most common language spoken and studied in the world, there are several perks for knowing how to communicate in other languages.
Did you know that 20% of people in the United States are considered bilingual? On top of that, there is an expected 29% job growth in translators and interpreters between 2014 and 2024. It’s been proven that those who speak two languages have an improved concentration and increased gray matter!
Perhaps you want to go explore another country. Not only can you order food or ask for directions, but you can begin to explore and understand the culture better than if you were to only speak one language. There are even options to move to another country and teach English while you are learning the foreign language.
In expanding your brain by becoming bilingual, you are not only standing out from the crowd, but you are giving yourself more options in life. You have a better chance at getting jobs and communicating with more people, and you can even help connect people.
