Improving your English – a game changer!

Learning a new language is like gaining a new tool in your cultural arsenal. It is a way to interact with people of a different culture, broadening your perspectives and enabling previously unexplored adventures.

“Which language should I choose?”

Of course, no language is “better” than the rest. Your own preferences should obviously have a role in deciding which language you want to learn, but if you’re looking to be practical – there are some languages which are more widely spoken such as Mandarin, English, Hindi, Spanish and Arabic.

The language which will be most useful to you will depend on what – and where – you wish to explore, but one thing is for certain: knowing English will be a massive boost. Despite not being ranked as the most commonly spoken language in the world, it is considered a go-to language in most countries.

You should by no means limit yourself to one language, but a hot tip is to improve your English before attempting new ones!
