The benefits of knowing more than one language

The benefits of knowing more than one language

It’s a method of human communication with each other, either spoken or written. Language consists of words, that can be used in conventional manner. There are more than 6000 languages in the world, different countries have their own languages.

Knowing more than one language can help us in many ways, such as giving instructions; expressing feelings; or general communication; are few of many benefits.

Build your self-confidence
As we know our confidence enhances when we attain new skills and learning a new language is no different. Any new skill can contribute to increase in confidence and provide ease with dealing with certain situations, this same principal applies to communication whether by spoken, written words or sign language.

Good for travelling
If people know more than one language, and we all know travelling to many regions of the world becomes easier and more importantly enjoyable. We have all been to places, whether it a different country or even a restaurant at our local shopping district, able to speak to others in the relevant language makes you appreciate the surroundings much more.

You can become an Interpreter or a Translator
A Translator is a person who converts one written material form (source language) to another (target language). These materials can be court letters, certificates, applications etc. Most of the translators are self-employed. They usually work from home and enjoy the flexible hours.

Becoming an Interpreter enables you to work in various environments and can be challenging role at certain times. Many interpreters appreciate working with different people and at different venues each day and sometimes on the same day.

Types of interpreters and translators is covered in a different blog.

New social opportunities
Knowing more than one language also means opportunities meeting new people from different places and cultures. Meeting people with the different culture can open doors for developing interests and hobbies. Therefore a language has a large effect on social attributes.

Improve your memory
As we know more brain is best when it is continuously challenged, so learning something new can just be that challenge. Learning languages is, in laymen terms, memorising or getting familiar with the words and rules of that language.
