Importance Of Knowing Several Languages
Language is the main tool used for communication in all the countries. Unlike the past nothing is confined to one country with the efficient transportation system and development of technology. Therefore it has become a necessity to keep a good link with other countries and people also have to move with people of other countries in most of the instances. English has been named as the link language for the purposes of effective communication among the countries. Nevertheless it is advantages to know more than one language and here’s why
Many job opportunities
The focus of most of the people today is to find money. The weight placed on education is also for the same. The more educated you are more money you can make out of a job. With the globalization a considerable weight is also placed on learning of more languages, and languages such as French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic and etc. are parts of school curriculum as well. If one knows more languages they can easily get the working visas or even the citizenship and work in such country where such language is used.
To be well-read and profound
No matter how satisfied you are with the available resources you have, everything in a country cannot be just understood just by referring to a book or two. There are inherent practices and features you can be well informed of if you refer to books written in the native languages. Thus if you are a keen knowledge seeker it is important for you to know several languages. But it is understood that one person cannot easily grasp all the languages. Some languages have total different figures and letters and much effort is needed to learn them. Every country is specialized in something and a country like Arab is well known for their skills on business and although the language might be difficult English Arabic translation can be used if you are interested to read an Arabic books or newspapers. If you know a language you can read writings written in such but if you don’t know you can get them translated and be well informed.
Some countries give prominence to their native language
You might have surely come across countries which do not place an insistence on learning English as the link language and which seek to give prominence to their local languages only. Sometimes they like if others also can learn theirs. If you already know the language of such country it might be a great advantage as you will find it easy to communicate with the people of such country effectively.
