One of the most rewarding aspects of the human experience is our ability to connect with others. Being able to communicate with someone in his or her language is an incredible gift. People who speak more than one language have the unique opportunity to communicate with a wider range of people in their personal and professional lives. Language is the most direct connection to other cultures; being able to communicate in another language exposes us to, and fosters an appreciation for, the traditions, religions, arts, and history of the people associated with that language. Greater understanding, in turn, promotes greater tolerance, empathy, and acceptance of others with studies showing that children who have studied another language are more open toward and express more positive attitudes toward the culture associated with that language. Language skills can be a significant competitive advantage which set young people apart from their peers.
They are among the top eight skills required of all occupations and the demand for bilingual professionals is rising exponentially. Learning a second language opens additional doors to opportunities for travel, exploration, studying or working abroad.
