Studying a language opens doors which remain closed to other people: not only will your career options be significantly better, but you will also have a wider understanding of other cultures and world affairs, as well as making new friends in other countries. Not only that, but it has been proven that learning a language boosts brain power, which means that you will do better in your other subjects too!
