Learning a Foreign Language
Foreign languages are
absolutely necessary for people nowadays, because of our growing international
contacts with foreign countries.
There are many reasons, why we
begin to study foreign languages. One studies a foreign language to be able to
communicate with other people who speak this language, other study it for
If we are planning to travel
to countries where the language we can speak is spoken, we can communicate with
people there and understand what they are saying to us.
If we are working in any
branch of science, we naturally wish to read scientific books and magazines in
other languages to raise our professional level. Making business nowadays also
means the ability of speaking foreign languages.
The ability of speaking one or
two or even more foreign languages helps people from different countries to
develop mutual friendship and understanding. We can also make our intellectual
and cultural horizons wider through contacts with people of another culture.
It is also very interesting to
read foreign literature in its original form. We can also read foreign
newspapers and magazines and understand films in foreign languages without any
help and translation.
As for me I learn English,
because English is a very popular language all over the world. It is used in
many parts of the world and there is a lot of business correspondence and
literature in English.
Also I am going to learn
Spanish, because it is also a widely spread language.
I think, it is very important
to speak at least one foreign language either English or German or French and
Spanish or any other one.
There is a saying: the more
languages you speak, the more times you are a human being.
