Learning a second language is great – and we’re not just saying that because we offer German courses! It can do many, many great things for you, seriously! Here’s a small selection of the benefits of learning a second language:
Stave off dementia: it’s a proven fact that being bilingual helps to stave off dementia! Keeping your brain healthy and active is one of the most important things you can do and what better way to do it than to learn German, right?
Expand your mind: when learning German you’re not just learning a language, you’re learning about the culture and traditions of another country, and believe us when we say Germany has a lot of exciting traditions that are still going strong today! We’re guessing there are a few you would like to be involved with!
To Boost your Intelligence: research shows that speaking a second language makes you more intelligent and who doesn’t want to me more intelligent? Students who study foreign languages tend to score better in standardized tests than monolingual students, especially in math, reading and vocabulary. Foreign language learners also show greater cognitive development in areas like mental flexibility, creativity and higher order thinking skills such as problem-solving, conceptualizing and reasoning. It boosts your memory skills and your children can massively benefit too – the younger you learn, the greater the impact on your intelligence. Children who have studied a language at the elementary level score higher on tests in reading, language arts, and math. It’s also said learning a second language can stave off dementia and keep your brain active for longer. It’s a no-brainer!
To Sharpen your Life Skills: learning a language can sharpen your life skills. Those who learn a language can deal with unfamiliar cultural ideas, they are much better equipped to adapt and cope in a fast-changing world. They are more confident, they learn to effectively handle new situations quickly and easily. They become more tolerant to diverse lifestyles, cultures and customs and their ability to understand and communicate with people from different walks of life is also massively increased.
Add to that the fact that it boosts your career prospects, can lead you to living in another country and could help you to converse better with family and friends and you have got one good list of reasons why you should in fact take a German course! For even more reasons, click here.
