Hone Your Language Skills
In addition to allowing for personal development, studying abroad gives you freedom and enables yu to explore the world in ways that you wouldn’t have otherwise been able to. Studying abroad expands your horizons in incredible ways.
Studying abroad offers a unique opportunity to fully immerse yourself in another language and culture. While studying abroad, you can learn a local language or deepen your knowledge of English, the international language of study. Both additional language and English speaking skills are of course adornments to your resume, but the benefits of language proficiency go far beyond that.
High-level language skills are a window into a culture and the dominant thought processes of its people. For example, the abstract, floral nature of French represents the artistic and philosophical nuances that exist in French culture. In formal German, the tendency towards long, complex sentences indicates a value for complex and detailed thinking. Discovering languages that use different alphabets or symbols opens up a whole new world of distribution of meanings before you. The ability to understand a language is the key to unlocking entire channels of information, from local newspapers to virtually any text that is not available in translation.
