Language is more than just communication. Sure...being able to speak with someone in his or her native language is critical in a huge range of personal and professional areas, but learning a second (or third or fourth...) language comes with plenty of other benefits.

For example, "People who speak a second language appreciate multiple perspectives and cultures and are equipped to exercise diverse thought and action..." Those are the kind of broad, transferable skills that will be crucial to your careers over the coming decades.

Posting of the Week

Many Languages, One World promotes the continued learning of the six official languages of the United Nations-Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. To qualify, essays must be written in an official language of the United Nations that is neither your first language (language(s) spoken at home) nor the medium of instruction in either your primary or secondary education (or a medium of instruction if attending a bilingual school). You will need to demonstrate both written and verbal competency in the language of the essay. You must be a full-time university student, referred and endorsed by a faculty member or university representative, and must be 18 years of age or older by the contest deadline. Learn more
