Learning a new language is about much more than passing exams or getting good marks. It is about opening up new life opportunities, making new friends in different countries, experiencing other cultures and broadening your horizons.
Language learning is also about “training your brain”. Research shows that people who speak multiple languages are better at problem solving. Language skills can improve your career prospects, help you live in another country and boost your confidence.
The European Union actively encourages language learning at all ages, and a wide range of opportunities are available to school learners.
