6 Reasons Why Everyone Should Learn a Second Language

6 Reasons Why Everyone Should Learn a Second Language

Learning languages has been, I think, one of the best things I could have ever done for myself. Learning and practicing languages other than my native tongue has made me feel wiser, made my brain sharper, and opened me up to other countries and opportunities.

The majority of my foreign language education has revolved around Spanish. I started in high school, minored in it in college, studied abroad in Spain in order to immerse myself, and continue to practice it on my own today. Throughout the years, I’ve also dabbled with German, Icelandic, Gaelic and French. All of these have been fun, if interesting and challenging at times, to learn and helped out in some way.
