The benefits of being bilingual
Why study English?
With half the world’s population bilingual and an increasingly globalised world, there are definite advantages to speaking more than one language. As English is the most preferred global language, there are now two billion speakers of the English language worldwide.
So, why learn a new language?
In an age of easier and more frequent travel, being bilingual can make travel less stressful. It enhances new cultural experiences and allows for a more immersive experience. For example, you’ll be able to talk to local people more clearly and language won’t be so much of a barrier. You’ll be a more relaxed and confident communicator.
Learning and understanding more English will make you more employable and give you a competitive edge. Learning English will make living in an English-speaking country easier for you and help with day-to-day living and the bureaucracy of settling into a new country. Finding jobs and building a career will be less challenging. English gives simplicity in business, education, technology, and social life. A passport to a better life!
And did you know that recent studies reveal that bilingual people’s brains age more slowly? This means that they live more satisfying and healthier lives.
In 2018, 496,737 (English UK data) people came to the UK to study English as a foreign language. Could that be you this year?
