Job Advantage in a Global Economy

More and more businesses work closely with companies in other countries. They need employers who can communicate in different languages and understand other cultures. No matter what career you choose, if you've learned a second language, you'll have a real advantage.

If you've ever thought of being a nurse, a doctor, a judge, an architect, a businessperson, an engineer, or a lawyer, you will multiply your chances for success if you speak more than one language. Professionals who know other languages are called on to travel and exchange information with people in other countries throughout their careers. Knowing more than one language enhances opportunities in government, business, medicine and health care, law enforcement, teaching, technology, the military, communications, industry social service, and marketing. An employer will see you as a bridge to new clients or customers if you know a second language.

Learning Another language improves your intellectual skills

Did you know that studying a second language can improve your skills and grades in math and English and can improve entrance exam scores-SATs, ACTs, GREs, MCATs, and LSATs?

Research has shown that math and verbal SAT scores climb higher with each additional year of foreign language study, which means that the longer you study a foreign language, the stronger your skills become to succeed in whatever career you choose. Studying a foreign language can improve your analytic and interpretative capacities. And a major in a language will catch the eye of anyone reading your resume.

Other Cultures: Your World and Beyond

Connect with other cultures. Get an insider's view of another culture and a new view of your own. Knowledge of other cultures will help you expand your personal horizons and become a responsible citizen. Your ability to talk to others and gather information beyond the world of English will contribute to your community and your personal confidence and growth.
