    Default Text about learning a new language


    Being bilingual or even trilingual is considered very important for people's growth. The reasons to learn a foreign language are remarkable: To get a well-paid job, to know about other cultures and to have the ability to talk with foreign people who do not speak the same language as you.

    Nowadays, the only way to get a good job and be well paid is to know how to speak two or even three languages. If you do not know how to speak English, you are in disadvantage comparing with people who know. Although English is required in most of the jobs, it is not the only language demanded. Someone who does not know English will probably get a lower wage and be excluded from many jobs.

    Languages involve wonderful feelings and one of them is to discover others' culture. One of the most interesting cultures in the world is the French one. People study French because they are willing to know French’s customs so language is one of the methods to learn about them. People not only learn a new language to get a good salary, but also to learn about other culture.

    Finally, many people just learn a new language to have the ability to talk with people who come to their countries for tourism. It is said nothing can be compared with understanding someone who speak other language and can help him. "Boom" of tourism in some countries such as Argentina, Brazil, and China makes people to learn a second language to understand tourists.

    In summary, learning a second language will open doors to new employment opportunities. Whatever is the reason you learn one, learning a new language is a smart decision.

    English is required for most jobs nowadays. You may be able to get a job without knowing English, but it will be at a lower rate of pay. Some jobs you may not be able to get at all without knowing English.

    One reason to learn another language is to learn about the culture of another people. One of the most interesting cultures in the world is the French one. People study French because they are willing to learn French customs, and and language is one of the methods for learning about them. People learn a new language not only to get a good salary, but also to learn about another culture.
