You already know many of the answers: to be able to travel and communicate with people from all over the world, to be able to engage in foreign trade and help Australian economy grow, to make friends from other countries and learn about new cultures. To discover all the many things that unites us rather than focus on the few things that are different.
But did you know that learning Languages makes you understand how your own language works, therefore improving English literacy skills? In addition, research shows that bilingual children tend to have higher cognitive ability. This helps them learn new concepts more easily in all learning areas.
