I speak four languages: Italian, English, Spanish and German. I began to speak my mother language when I was a child and I began to learn several foreign languages: when I was 6 years old I started studying English, when I was 10 years old I began to learn Spanish and when I was 13 years old I began to learn German.
For me studying languages is important because you can go and live abroad, after completing your studies. Actually, many young people leave their country to look for a good job abroad. This is mainly due to the scarcity or lack of good job opportunities in local areas.When you move to a different country or region, learning the local language will help you to communicate and integrate with the local community.
In companies, the knowledge of foreign languages can offer greater opportunities for both personal and corporate growth. This study also helps you understand your own language and culture better.
Studying languages is important because it opens up a world of job opportunities, too.
You can make new friends and you can know about their cultures. With the study of languages you can travel more easily, you can have real conversations with the people you meet, which can be very interesting and will add a new dimension to your holiday and you can train your brain too.
Last but not least, learning other languages increases our chances of providing help to people who seriously need it.
Defining the importance of studying languages is the same thing of defining one of the elements of human nature: the need to communicate.
