Why Learn Another Language?
The choice seems pretty straightforward.
But we are biased, so decide for yourself.
Learning another language doesn't simply provide you with a competitive advantage in your career; achieving mastery of another language provides one with a personal sense of accomplishment that is quite unparalleled.
In addition to personal fulfillment and aside from career development, foreign language acquisition provides a unique sense of cultural enrichment; we aren't just talking about enveloping one's self within foreign culture either. Acquiring a foreign language inevitably exposes one to foreign culture which in turn lets one question his or her own personal idealogy regarding the global stage in conjunction with what one has learned from being introduced to another way of life.
The ability to communicate with others of another tongue is rewarding philosophically, personally, pecuniarily, and personably.
We like to call that a trifecta.
Also, try saying that alliteration five times fast.
