Language learning through your native tongue, such as learning English
more fully can be accomplished by the language learning software at Euro
Talk which can be found on the web at www.eurotalk.ie. But what about
learning a foreign language- should you take the time to do so? The
answer to this is an emphatic YES and Euro Talk can be with you every
step of the way on the learning path.

The number one reason to learn a foreign language is so that you can
communicate with other people who speak the language in question. This
can include individuals you meet when you are travelling and also people
you meet at home who speak more than one language. Learning to speak
another language will make you welcomer when you travel and it shows a
tremendous respect for a different culture than your own. People notice
and are pleased when you make a concerted effort to speak a local
language, even if you only learn a few words such as hello, goodbye,
please and thank you.

Cultural understandings are bridged when a person takes on the endeavour
of learning to speak a new language. Learning a new language opens up new
avenues and new ideas and provides a broader way of viewing the world.
There are many cultural and linguistic differences between languages and
learning these can make a great deal of difference to ones life. Be aware
as well that learning to speak another language also means that you can
enjoy music, film and literature in the language and do not require it to
be translated. Rarely is a translation an exact replica of what was
originally spoken, sung or written.

Learning a foreign language will increase your options when it comes to
your chosen career. A great number of schools as well as plenty of
employers have a preference for those who are able to speak more than one
language. While English is a language that is spoken widely throughout
the world, it would do you well to learn French for example if you will
be doing business in France at all or if you will be working with French
clients.

Learning another language can also play a role in helping you learn more
about your own. You can enhance your ability to know as much as possible
about the English language by learning another language, such as French
or Spanish. Check out www.eurotalk.ie to get you started on the language-
learning path.
