Learning a new language

Posted on December 30, 2014 at 9:01 pm

Studies have shown that the best time to learn a new language is when you are a child. People often say that a child’s brain is like a sponge and just keeps absorbing new information, and learning language is much easier to do when you are younger. Most schools in the UK teach at least one other language – this is often either French, German or Spanish, some offer more.

If you have the opportunity to learn an additional language then you should grab it with both hands. With the huge increase in online activity and worldwide trading, employers are often looking for people that are multilingual and if you have this skill you may find that you can land that dream job a lot easier than you thought.


Even if you do not need it for a job, it is a great skill to have in life. There may be many times when yo encounter people who speak a foreign language either in the UK or away on holiday and if you can have a conversation with them it can make things a lot easier.
