Speaking Part 2:
A language other than English you would like to learn
- Why would you learn?
- How would you learn?
- What challenges you will face?
- What benefits it would have?
In today’s world, knowing only one language is not enough. Due to globalization, the importance of foreign languages has increased more than ever before. Knowledge of different languages provides us a cosmopolitan approach to respect global diversity. In order to improve the social accessibility, I would like to learn French. It is one of the most frequently used languages worldwide after English.
As an International language, the benefits of learning this language are innumerable. In India, French is the most crowd-pleasing choice among the people who want to master different languages. Learning French language not only helps in enhancing our communication skills but also opens the doors to study abroad. Many French companies are setting up their regional offices in India and offering numerous career options in different sectors. Therefore, the ability to speak French will provide me an opportunity to work in these companies.
Generally, most of the people think that French is a difficult European Language. Taking out time from my hectic schedule to learn this language will be a challenging task for me. Firstly, I will have to search for an excellent French tutor. In order to learn, speak and write French effectively, I will have to memorize the French verbs and their prepositions properly. Further, I may also face challenges in picking up accent and pronunciation. But I believe, discipline, self-study and motivation are the keys to achieve a higher proficiency. I will overcome all the difficulties by referring to relevant study material along with regular practice.
Overall, culture and languages are inextricably intertwined. So, we learn about the cultural heritage of a country when we learn its languages. Moreover, being a multilingual sometimes, makes us noticeable and leaves an everlasting impression on others.
