Why learn a new language?

We live in a globalized world dominated by the English language, although it is not the most spoken language in terms of number of native speakers (it is second only to Chinese and Spanish), it is the most spoken language in terms of total number of speakers, followed by Chinese and Hindi. However, there are about six thousand languages in the world, of which one dies every two weeks, and it is expected that in less than ten years they will be reduced to six hundred.

So why limit ourselves only to learning English? Nowadays, it is no longer enough just to speak English, but the world of work increasingly demands workers who speak a third language. Thus, studying a foreign language has a multitude of advantages, both in the workplace and for individuals. Learning a new language allows us to learn a new code, culture, customs, ideas… Also, nowadays it is not necessary to spend a lot of money on courses since there are free or very economical platforms for learning languages such as Duolingo, Rosetta Stone, Glossika, Babbel, etc.

These allow us to learn independently and adapted to our own pace, in a different and fun way. Don’t hesitate, this is the best time to learn. Listen to the 4 reasons why to study a new language given by linguist and Columbia University professor John McWhorter.
