Some people say that the only reason for learning a foreign language is in order to travel to or work in a foreign country. Others say that these are not the only reasons why someone should learn a foreign language.
Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
foreign language knowledge
In modern society, it is convenient to travel to foreign countries and even work in foreign countries. Languages, as a result, can play vital part in traveling or living in different countries. Some people said that traveling to and working in a foreign country is the sole reason why people learn a new language, while others believed that not only traveling or working, but also other reasons that attributed to why people should learn other languages.
It is true that learning a foreign language is important for people who travel to and work in a different country. If we cannot speak local language, we are unlikely to communicate with local residents and sometimes language barrier can cause misunderstanding. Moreover, multi-language skill is quite necessary in today's working environment. International business and corporation between corporations from different countries require employees to travel, work, and even live in another country.
However, leaning another language can have a great positive impact in our daily lives besides from working and traveling. We can have a better understanding of a county's culture and history through learning its language. Many traditions and cultures passed down by language in early years when words were still not being invented. Furthermore, learning new language is the fastest way to integrate into local life. It allows us to really experience local life style and understand local habits. Besides, we can learn to use different angles to see things, so that we will be able to think critically and more comprehensive.
For me, after learning second language, I feel I have more connection with the world even without traveling, I learn to see global affairs not in one angle, but in different aspects. Without a doubt, I believe that learning a different language benefits our lives apart from working and traveling. Through learning, we can broaden our views and increase our skills
