Why learn a language?

Travel Even a little knowledge of the language can make a difference in attitude when you meet people from other countries. Speaking another language helps to break down barriers.

Work and business It can help you give an added advantage in your career if you work for an international firm or a company with international customers or contacts.

Music, film, arts, and culture If you like literature, films or music from other countries, learning the language will help your appreciation and understanding.

For a challenge You can learn a language, in short, bite-sized sessions and you'll enjoy a sense of satisfaction from achieving short-term goals, such as learning how to say hello, introducing yourself or numbers 1-10.
