Why should you and your children learn another language?
The stereotypical view of the British is that we’re terrible at learning foreign languages. However, new research shows that 73% of us have considered learning a second language, so what is it that’s stopping us? There are practical reasons why many have not done so, as 47% can’t find the time to attend classes, while a further 44% find the costs too high. An additional 24% of people can’t seem to find any classes close by.

 Technology is changing the way people learn and access education. Online learning opportunities are helping to boost the numbers of people interested in foreign languages. The mode is flexible and can be adapted to any schedule, allowing people with busy schedules to gain new language skills without spending time and money attending classes.

 Parents don’t always recognise the value of learning a second language in a changing world. Passing on concrete and demonstrable life skills to children will give them a better advantage in many areas of their lives, both now and in the future. In addition to enhancing travel opportunities as a family and gaining a better cultural understanding, benefits range from academic achievement and career success to better interpersonal relationships. So, isn’t it time that you broadened your horizons and take the plunge by learning a second language, for both you and your children?
