Why Learn a Foreign Language? PDF Print E-mail

why you need to learn a foreign languageLearning a foreign language is a great way to enhance your resume and market yourself in the global marketplace. Companies are increasingly looking for applicants with foreign language skills to conduct business. Still, many Americans have not embraced the need to learn a foreign language. Author Edward Trimnell discusses this phenomenon in Why You Need A Foreign Language and How to Learn One, and goes on to describe exactly why it is important for English speakers to learn a foreign language...

"In the English-speaking world, the importance of language study is by no means accepted as self-evident. The percentage of native-born Americans who can actually speak a foreign language is abysmally small. The exact numbers are hard to come by, but ask yourself: among your friends, family members and professional colleagues who were born in the United States, how many could hold a conversation in any language besides English? Few readers will know more than one or two people who fulfill these criteria--and the majority will not know a single native-born American who can pass the test."

Effective communication is more than just words PDF Print E-mail

"... Effective communication and successful negotiations with a foreign partner--whether with a partner in peacekeeping, a strategic economic partner, a political adversary, or a non-English speaking contact in a critical law enforcement action --requires strong comprehension of the underlying cultural values and belief structures that are part of the life experience of the foreign partner."

Dr. Dan Davidson, President of the American Councils on International Education

There is so much more to learning a language than words and sentences; our Atlanta language school is dedicated to incorporating cultural values and beliefs with our classes, as is natural when you form a relationship with a native language instructor.
