Benefits of learning a new language

Learning a new language has lots of benefits. It's no surprise that people who speak more than one language have considerable advantages while travelling, applying for jobs and pursuing higher education. Having access to internet and advanced transport system have changed our lives dramatically in the past couple of decades. Globalization brought us closer and has made internationl relations part of our life style. Speaking languages increases the odds of landing opportunities and making dreams come true.

Scientific studies show learning a new language has visible effects on the brain. The size of the brain of those who were learning a new language has growed over a three week program. This will influence the cognitive functions and slows down the aging of the brain. Canadian researches show that bilingualism postpones deseases related to Alzaimer to later ages.

Fluency in more than one language improves the chances in the job market. Workopolis has analysed millions of resumes and job postings to evaluate the importance of English and French languges in Canadian workplaces. They have realized 8.8% of job postings require both English and French languages which makes impossible for monolinguals to apply for them. The same data shows that being fluent in a second language gives you an advantage over 59% of candidates.

Learning a second language is very easier today with new methods and technologies. You can try it just by downloading a new app on your smart phone and open a new world of opportunity, delight and connection. Why not spend a short amount of time every day and learn a new language? You can start today.
