The biggest advantage we have as human beings is our ability to make meaningful connections with others and language is one of the most important ways we do this. Being able to speak with someone in his or her language is an incredible gift. In a world that has changed very quickly, knowing a second language can make you feel like a local no matter where you live. When you can speak to people in their own language, you will be humbled by the kindness of strangers and it will help you build lifelong friendships. In addition, studies have shown that people who speak more than one language have improved memory, problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, it also helps in slowing mental aging as it builds new neural pathways in the brain.
