5 things you will learn about yourself when learning a new language.🌍
1. You would become very curious.
Remember the first spark of curiosity for the new language?
Exploring another language and culture will feed your curiosity, increasing your motivation to keep learning! ⠀
2. You'll increase your intelligence
When you invest in your cultural IQ and learning new languages, you’re building critical-thinking skills, expanding your worldview, and keeping your cognitive knowledge sharp. In fact, research shows that the brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers. ⠀
Speaking more than one language has also been shown to increase perception, improve your ability to multitask, and make you more observant. Bottom line: Language learners are often the best and the brightest, and they’ve worked hard for that.
3. You'll develop a greater openness to others
Willingness to be vulnerable and open almost always turns out to be the bridge to learning — and mastering — the new language and culture you set out to explore. ⠀
4. You'll discover your adventurous side.
Not only will learning another language feed your curiosity, but it will increase your motivation to explore other cultures at home as well as abroad. ⠀
5. You'll find that you're braver than you think.
Learning a new language is a brave new world. You’re choosing to embrace the unfamiliar over the familiar. It is brave to choose knowledge and growth over comfort zones and a single-perspective existence. ⠀
