Why study a language?

Learning a language enables you to engage in an increasingly interconnected and multicultural world. You’ll gain an appreciation for different cultures and a better understanding of human nature. Studying more than one language results in many cognitive benefits. These include better memory, enhanced concentration and stronger multitasking skills. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, careers as interpreters and translators are expected to grow 19% from 2018 to 2028.
