When people ask me why they should learn French or any other language, the first thing that come to mind is the desire to find out about other people and their culture, to share experiences from food to music, art to humour. Basicaly it is the best way to broaden your horizon.

But it's not only about knowledge and altruism. On a practical level, there is the satisfaction of being able to communicate with people (while on holidays); to feel included in a global world which is more and more individualistic, to go back to basic.

On a business level, to be able to communicate directly with your opposite number without a third party helps creating stronger links and trust among partners.

As learning a foreign language helps you on a social, cultural and business level, it also helps you on a medical one. New studies are showing that a multilingual brain is nimbler, quicker, better able to deal with ambiguities, resolve conflicts and even resist Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia longer.

It surely must be a good thing to learn another language.
