|-||Tomorrow's world - 52.7% of Europeans are fluent in two languages and in many countries it's normal for people to be able to use three languages.|
|-||Job opportunities - 94% of employers think that foreign langauge skills are important. Knowing languages gives you an edge over monolingual applicants competing for the same jobs.|
|-||Knowing about other cultures - 75% of the world's population does not speak any English at all. The encouter with cultures different from your own leads to an understanding of diverse lifestyles and cultures.|
|-||Travel and study abroad opportunities - Studying abroad can be the opportunity of a lifetime and is becoming more popular. Students are fully immersed and integrated into the academic an social life of the country in which they are studying or travelling through - the ideal way to improve their language skills further.|
