Some Reasons to Learn a Foreign Language

by Jake Beus July 30th, 2010 More

Some reasons to learn a foreign language are obvious, while others may be new to you. Some obvious reasons are traveling, meeting new people, and improving your work life. With a little help from Brent White, Elise Taylor, and Miranda Gennaro, I’d like to focus on the less obvious reasons, and let me know what you think:

  • Understand what’s being said about you when you’re sure it’s not good.
  • Understand what your fortune cookie really means.
  • Be able to talk to your mail order bride.
  • Don’t accidentally order something wrong at a restaurant.
  • You can turn off subtitles on foreign movies.
  • Swear in front of your kids without them knowing it.
  • Know what your Japanese tattoo really means.
  • Get better technical support.
  • Celebrate more holidays.
  • Confuse telemarketers or anyone you’re trying to avoid.
  • Get better scores at Scrabble.
  • Get out of embarrassing situations by acting like you don’t know English.

Can you think of any more reasons to learn a foreign language? Which reason is your favorite?

    Appreciating the commitment you put into your website and detailed information
    you provide. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t
    the same outdated rehashed material. Excellent read!
    I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home
    a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.

    When it is time to change oil, stop a moment before you pick the
    most expensive diesel car oil or cheap car oil.

    A case in point in that a V6 engine (non overhead cam) is nearly as expensive to build as
    a V8 engine. We operate dealerships in Parramatta, Blacktown, Alexandria, East Sydney
    and Melbourne.

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
