The Benefits of Learning a Second Language

The Benefits of Learning a Second Language

Hi everybody, today I’m going to talk about the Benefits of learning a second language. My native language is Spanish. I started to learn English when I was 6 years old in the school at 1st grade. I was in the American School of Saltillo and half of my subjects were in English, so the program was intended to teach English in different subjects, not only the English class.

When I was in high school, I realize the importance of knowing a second language such as English, and today I could not agree more.

Learning a new language takes time and dedication. Once you do, being fluent in a second language offers numerous benefits and opportunities. Learning a second language is exciting and beneficial and it offers practical, intellectual and many aspirational benefits.
