Language is very essential to every aspect and interaction in our daily life. Through language, we can inform what we feel, what we want, and what we (don’t) understand. In addition, we can communicate effectively through language. Communication drives our life and better ourselves.
As we know, there are many languages in this world. For example are Indonesian, English, Japanese, Spanish, etc. From those languages, we have already known that learning English is the most crucial. There are a number of reasons why a person would want to learn English as a second language.
However, “English is not enough”. Why should we learn another foreign language? The first reason is it gives greatly benefits on our reading and writing that could develop our individual intelligence. The second, a language would open up a whole new culture. Third, by learning a language, you gain new horizons, but at the same time you reinforce your own identity, and therefore also your self-confidence; as my lecturer ever said about “ideology within language”. The fourth is learning languages are also important to those working in business and nearly every other career track. Then, the question is, “How many languages can we learn?”. Maybe, we learn as many as they have time to study and practice. I know that learning a new language might not be all that easy, but there are many benefits indeed.
