Language is intricately interconnected with culture. In fact, can we really separate the two? The concept of language is so much a part of the culture we live in that each language has its own culture. To be able to speak the language of a specific culture is to be able to know the culture intimately. Thus, a person who can only speak English knows little about the culture and traditions of any other country.
By learning a foreign language, we can learn a whole new culture. There is an entire world out there to discover, with a new culture to experience. We can meet new people and learn about their culture and traditions. It is important not to take people for granted. We live in a multicultural society, and we should open our eyes to all the different cultures we come across.
Learning a foreign language can also provide us with job opportunities in the travel industry. Many companies and travel agencies are looking for bilingual employees to handle foreign tourists. This is a very rewarding job that can take you to some very interesting places. You will also be able to meet so many different people from all over the world.
So learn a new language, but also learn a new culture. Expand your mind, and live among other humans.
