TEN REASONS TO LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE
11 Feb 15:23 Daisy Garcia Montoya
They say that language opens a whole new world but how true is it really? Is it truly worth spending hours on duolingo to end up butchering the one sentence you “learned?” Although trying to learn a new language beyond high school may seem like a lost cause, here are reasons why it should be on your 2023 checklist.
Improved communication with people from different cultures.
You know when people get tattoos in a different language thinking it means one thing only for native speakers to laugh and ask why they have “Fried Chicken” written in Chinese characters? Avoid this situation at all costs by taking the time to study a language and connect on a deeper level with natives.
Enhanced job opportunities and career advancement.
The grind never stops (seriously it never does, so if you’re wishing you could just grow up, stop and enjoy your youth). Since we are all stuck working until the end of time, why not gain meaningful skills that can allow for a promotion to take place and double the bag? Additionally, there are certain languages that are at higher demand due to very few individuals in the workforce that speak it that could provide an even higher monetary advantage.
Increased brain function and cognitive development.
Don’t you want to impress and flex on the haters? Imagine someone annoying you and being to call them out in a whole new language. How impressive would that be? Learning a new language helps stimulate the brain, keeping it healthy and active even as it ages.
Better understanding of one's own culture and language
Taking the time to learn words from another language can get you into the rabbit hole of linguistics and teach you a few things about your own native tongue. It may not always seem like it but many languages, no matter how different they may seem, can cause you to realize certain aspects of your own culture. You may find yourself appreciating your own accent and way in which sentences and slang is used in your home language.
Improved memory and problem-solving skills.
Feel like you have short-term memory loss? We got the skill for you! Practicing new vocabulary, reading and learning new phrases are the perfect remedy to put your memory to work. As you commit to learning a new language, your brain will soak in the information and practice its memorization skills like never before.
Increased travel experiences and cultural immersion.
Wouldn’t it be nice to go to Egypt and actually understand everything that is being said to you while you’re on holiday? Not only will you be able to get a true local experience, but now you won’t have to worry about getting into awkward situations that you would have if you hadn’t taken the time to get outside your comfort zone.
Enhanced ability to learn other languages more easily.
Why stop at one new language? Once you’ve done it with one, you can do it again and again again. The first time will be the most challenging but once you overcome the climb like Miley Cryrus said, you’ll be able to conquer it all.
Improved overall academic performance.
There’s a reason why most schools have a foreign language requirement and that's largely due to science verifying that when you begin to immerse yourself in a new language, you just happen to perform better in school. Reach the top of the world and your class when you pick up a new language.
Opportunities for personal growth and self-discovery.
Let this be your Eat, Pray, Love moment. Create a new world of endless possibilities by learning a new language you think you may never need but want to learn anyways. One minute you’d be learning and the next, you'd be halfway across the world in that language, practicing it with a local. Go for it and see where it could take you.
A sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
For all the athletes out there and overachievers, get into your competitive side and see how learning a new language will make you feel like a million dollars. Your competition will have nothing on you when you show up on a random Tuesday night with the vocabulary of a travel agent having learned a new language.
If you’re still not convinced, you’re just lame. Open your horizons, take in new cultures, be different and take your rizz to the next level. Pick up that duolingo and get to learning, what do you have to lose? Not sure where to start, start with Goluremi Languages.
