In this modern and competitive job market, it is necessary to stand out from the crowd in order to secure that dream job that you have been working so hard for and know that you are the right candidate. An excellent way to make yourself stand out from other candidates is to undertake a study abroad placement. Not only is this an excellent and enriching social experience, but it gives you the opportunity to add a life skill that companies are practically begging for, the ability to speak another language.
Why Should I Learn Another Language?
Not only is language learning an excellent way of training your brain and becoming even more desirable on the job market, but it opens up a whole new world of opportunities for you both now and in the future. For example; should you choose to learn French, a world language at the forefront of politics, commerce and just about every other industry in the world, you will be handed the keys to over 30 countries, 250 million people and a host of international organisations that any graduate would kill to be even considered for!
Used as an official language in organisations such as the United Nations, the European Union and the World Health Organisation (all located in French speaking cities and states), and credited as a founder of modern romance (and even Germanic in the case of English) languages, French is cited as one of the world s most important languages and is the second most taught language on the world. For this reason, it is even easier to learn French without having to even leave the comfort of your city, even though, for many, travelling abroad is the best part of the language learning process.
So with all these options at your fingertips, maybe it is time for you to step out into the world and spread your wings!
