Travel Thursdays: Learning Languages, A Gateway to the World
There’s nothing that can open up new worlds quite like discovering new languages. But if you didn’t grow up bilingual, you might fear that learning a new language could be too difficult. Fear not!
It’s never too late to learn a new language – and putting in that time and energy can teach you volumes about the history and culture the language originates in. Not to mention the fun of traveling to a destination that helps you test out your new skills! So let’s take a few minutes this week to celebrate the love of language and help you discover how you can learn more.
It’s hard to pick which language to learn next, so why not focus on some of the most used in the world? These five languages are most common and therefore could lead to more chance of actually using them on your travels.
One of the best ways to learn a new language is to simply dive in. And what better way to do that than studying abroad? If you’re a high school or college student, study abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be missed.
Are you more of a visual person? Check out this infographic to find out the second languages people around the world are most likely to know. Again, it could be a great way to decide which language could become your second language (or third, or fourth…).
