What is the significance of learning a language?
The value of language as a tool of communication grew as humans began to spread out and interact more.
Traders and visitors began to understand that learning at least a few phrases in the language of the area they were visiting made their lives easier.
Contact with outsiders, on the other hand, resulted in alterations to the “native” languages. People w
ho interacted and conversed with travelers and traders picked up a few of their phrases and terms, which became part of their everyday speech.
Most modern languages, those that have survived, have done so because many people have learned them, even if they are not their native tongue.
Because of the addition of other words and phrases, most current languages sound substantially different from how they "initially" sounded.
Why is it useful to learn a second language?
If you like to travel or are thinking of working or doing business abroad, you might have received the advice that you should learn another language. You might be asking yourself why is it important to know more than one language? It all boils down to the importance of being able to communicate.
It is crucial to be able to communicate; to be able to express one's views, feelings, and desires. It's also crucial to be able to comprehend the thoughts, feelings, and needs of others.
Being able to speak well and understand one other allows us to bond and build relationships. Bilinguals are people who have learned a second language well enough to be able to communicate in it, especially on a daily basis.
