Having a second tongue is such a fantastic skill to have for both socialising with people from different nations and cultures, alongside being able to communicate across a wide range of businesspeople in various countries. A lot of us are taught language in our early years through school, but with the lack of focus that is put around it, most of this is quickly forgotten and never to be used again.
I was brought up in a family speaking a variety of languages in the home my whole life, so naturally had an interest and picked some bits up rather quickly. But because learning in school is so poorly taught these days, students struggle to have the desire to learn a second language and progress their skills.
These skills can be helpful in both social and business environments, so it is important to learn them from an early age and develop as many tongues as you can. Learn more about languages and find a tutor near you from The Language Machine
