Learning new language is always beneficial for one. The direct benefit of getting to know new language is making people impressed to the person thus increasing the person’s self-esteem. Knowing another language is often linked to people’s intelligence.
Knowing another language also helps to expand the person’s network around the world because interaction and understanding are easy to build upon the same language even though both parties are strangers to each other.
Language skill is also proven to increase people’s work competency. It helps people to get much greater opportunity to get job. Today, the business context has expanded to international market and it is necessary for businesses to cater international customers’ demands. Thus, people who are multilingual needed to support day-to-day operation.
In the travelling perspective, it’s easier for those who know multiple languages to move to another country either for pleasure, education or work purpose. By knowing the language of the foreign country it saves them from hassle from translating and understanding the information.  When you learn the language, you also learn the culture indirectly hence widen your knowledge about other cultures.

    Hi, it’s just out of the topic though, Can I make a question about the usage of the English here, as a English learner?It’s just, that you said "many researches", and I gave a question about this to people few days ago, and they said they would naver say the plural of "research". If they have to, they said they would use "much research" not "many researches".If you can give me a respond to this comment, I would be really grateful. Thanks.

    Thanks for the comment, Juhyun! This was actually a typo, and I have now corrected it to say "researchers".You are right, however, about the correct plural of "research". Thanks for pointing this out 🙂
