As most people always think that with just knowing English, you can easily advance and prosper in any undertaking wherever you want let it be business or social living. However, the story has changed today where the multilingual people with much knowledge on foreign languages stand better chances if not all, of advancing easily than someone that only knows one language in today’s business environment, in this case English. Recent studies have indicated that multilingual people find it so easy to associate with anyone and that their brains operate a bit differently and smarter than those who only speak one language.
It always sounds more like arrogance when someone travels through all the major world regions and expects each and every one to hear, understand and speak his native language. Therefore, for one to easily travel the world either for business or personal reasons, he should be able and willing to adapt and learn different other languages and cultures. There is no possible way you can be able to easily interact with new people in different regions if you are unable to speak and understand their language. In other cultures, attempt to learn and speak their languages is seen as a sign of respect.
Advantages of learning different Foreign Languages
Learning and understanding different foreign languages has various advantages and importance among which include the following;
Easy and fast Personal expression of feelings, queries and desires. With full utilization of the language’s tone and words, one will be able to easily express himself and his feelings, desires and demands wherever and whenever either through written or spoken expression.

Languages act as passports to other regions and countries. Planes and paper passports can take you to another country but can you really easily settle and survive in that country if you cannot speak or understand their language? I don’t think so. With the language knowledge, you can easily get used to their culture, make friends and be able to express yourself like when asking for directions or any other thing.

Research has showed that knowing various languages is among the skills that are highly considered in the recruitment process today.
