  • Learning a new language boosts cognitive functions. A 2013 study published in International Journal of Bilingualism found that bilingual students tested higher than monolingual students in “cognitive control and problem-solving ability.”
  • Learning a new language enhances and improves memory. The Scandinavian Journal of Psychology notes that “bilingualism creates advantages in terms of cognitive abilities (including memory).”
  • Learning a new language expands your mind and worldview. It opens you up to new cultures and to the fruits of diversity.
  • Speaking a second or third language will boost confidence and increase self-esteem.
  • In a globalizing world, knowing a second or third language gives you an advantage career-wise.

According to Auburn University, “Four out of five new jobs in the US are created as a result of foreign trade,” so your “marketable skills in the global economy are improved if you master another language.”
