The world is becoming increasingly multilingual. The future belongs to the polyglots and monolinguals are decreasing in number. Even in the UK we have had a surge of language learning – maybe the word surge is a little strong, but something is happening.
But why do people learn languages? Do they want to become more employable? Is it because they like the sound or simply to travel?
You need to ask these questions to yourself before you embark on the titanic quest of learning a new language. You should know how difficult it is and how much the language(s) you already know will help you with conquering the next one.
It’s a widely acknowledged fact that speaking more than one language increases your employability, as well as being a hugely rewarding. If you are one such polyglot, then take a look at our language profiles below to help you make that important decision.
With language learning on the up, so is the range of language learning resources available. Here you can find the free online language learning resources, along with language learning courses abroad.
