Why Learn a Second Language?

In an increasingly smaller world, knowing a second language is a must!

  • Give yourself an edge: Many professions in the United States and around the world interact daily with people that speak many different languages. A second language will open up new career fields, and it will help you stand out in a competitive global economy.
  • Discover another culture: Learning another language will introduce you many new people and places around the world.
  • Make the world more accessible:  Traveling to a foreign country, for business or vacation, will be much easier if you can speak the language. Imagine the satisfaction of reading the newspaper or ordering lunch with the same ease as you would right here at home!
