Learn Indian n Foreign Language

1.5 Billion people speak English, but 5.5 billion persons speak other languages…

While English is the most extensively spoken language in the world, other languages like Chinese Mandarin, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese and Russian are not far behind. In a globalised economy, countries like China, France, Germany, Russia and Brazil are playing a prominent role and obviously their languages also have gained importance.

Learning a foreign language may appear daunting at first, but there are organizations and language schools in Indian cities which make the process easy. Learning to speak would be the easiest, followed by reading and writing. Audio-visual techniques have made learning languages simple and ensure that conversation, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciations are all mastered.

Foreign languages are learnt for professional reasons and personal reasons…

Corporates in business sectors like information technology, communication, tourism, trading and management deal with principals, collaborators, clients, affiliates and overseas branches in various countries and by knowing the foreign language, concerned employees would be able to understand the needs better and communicate better. Students aspiring to pursue higher education in non-English speaking counties would have to learn the foreign language first before taking up the course. However, such language study can take place in India or at the higher education institution in the overseas country.

So far as personal motives are concerned, learning language of a foreign country gives an insight of that country's culture, history, literature and lifestyle. It really is a stimulating experience. Finally, while travelling knowledge of the language of the host country would be a boon in terms of being able to travel around without any problems as well as being able to build relationships.

An interesting titbit: The easiest languages to learn for Indians have been found to be German, Persian, Nepali, Sinhalese, Malay and the Romance Languages (Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and Romanian).
