You know how most of us don’t really understand Spanish or even Punjabi music at times, yet we happily swing to ‘Despacito’ or even a Diljit song? That’s the beauty of a language. It can intrigue you even if you don’t understand it.
If you ever thought of learning a new language but stopped yourself, then these 5 reasons will motivate you to re-think that plan:
Know Your Language Learning Inspirations
1. More Job Opportunities
Simply put, having a foreign language or a native language on your CV makes it open to a lot of new opportunities which you don’t realise until they open up for you.
You could take up translation jobs (even if they are part time) and not only earn good bucks, but travel a lot. As far as native languages are concerned, you can get an upper hand in government jobs as well. In short, learning a new language opens job opportunities for you.

4. Enjoy Native Art
Imagine enjoying French Renaissance work better if you could understand the language or appreciating a native art in its purest form if you speak and understand the art.
Art goes beyond borders and language however; imagine savouring a pizza would be a different experience in Italy as compared to eating in Bangalore. See, that is the difference.

You explore a new and a different side of your personality and that is a big asset. This whole thing will show in your confidence which is turn will sharpen your interpersonal skills with people.
It doesn’t matter what language you pick, choose something new and learn something new in life. Don’t pick French because you think it’s cool, if Urdu interests you, learn that. Always remember that you are doing this for yourself before doing it for anything else in the world.
