Importance Of Learning Languages


In the ancient times before man began to communicate through verbal languages there was sign language. The primitive man used this effectively to communicate with the others but soon he began developing languages and that came to be known as one of the most important inventions made by mankind. Without languages we wouldn’t be where we are right now. The growth of our civilization would have been non-existent. In this day and age language is very important. Nowadays it is not just enough to know your own language that is the language that you were taught by birth. You also have to know as many other languages as possible.


Hindi is the national language of India so it is important that we all know Hindi. English is the universal language followed everywhere in the world and due to globalization the whole world is coming closer and in order to assert your importance you have to know English but what about other languages? I am talking about foreign languages like German, French, Spanish, etc. Our education system may not give that much importance to these languages but we must realize that these languages could help us a lot and that has to happen sooner than later. Most of the students these days are opting to study abroad and they would face a lot of alienation if they don’t know the language of the country they are going to.


Knowing the language of the country that you are planning to study in would help you in assimilating yourself to their way of life and would ease your stay. Otherwise you could face a lot of conflicts and you may not be able to do what you went there to do in the first place. This does not come easily. You can’t just all of a sudden decide to learn a particular language one day. The important thing to be done is that these extra languages have to be introduced at the school level along with English and Hindi and that is the only thing that can help you out. When you are young it is easy for you learn things so that is the right time to start.
