Advantages of this course

Learning a foreign language is more than just something that will look good on your CV or come in handy when you’re travelling. In fact, research shows that there are far more benefits than you’d imagine:

  • It boosts brain power and sharpens the mind – the techniques needed to learn another language mean people who speak more than one language have keener, more alert minds and are more perceptive than those that don’t
  • It builds self-confidence – mastering a new skill and being able to communicate in a different tongue naturally increases self-confidence
  • It develops the ability to multi-task – learning to switch between two systems of speech enables multilingual people, especially children, to become skilled multitaskers in other areas too
  • It improves memory and other brain functions –the brain is like a muscle. The more it’s used, the better it works
