Do you want to learn a new language? Are you on a study break? Do you wish to move abroad? Does the prospect of mingling with foreigners excite you? If your answer is yes to one or all of these questions, then consider learning the following languages in 2019.
China’s economy continues to grow at a rapid rate, and the prospect of learning its national language can be invaluable in the near future. Almost 15% of the global population converses in Mandarin. As China aggressively pursues its vision to build the New Silk Road, connecting the country with Africa, Asia, and Europe, Mandarin is expected to compete with English as the global business language.
Do you wish to learn a language that can provide you with the opportunity to speak with as many foreigners as possible?
Spanish may have fewer speakers than Mandarin, but it is spread across wider demographics, especially in three continents: South America, North America, and Europe. Spanish is noted for its presence in emerging economies like Colombia, Argentina, and Chile. Spanish has the advantage of being closer to English than other languages on this list.
Arabic is incorrectly considered to be limited to the Middle East. The language transcends borders and is spoken widely in many African countries. The success of the Gulf States has positioned the region as one of the most lucrative areas for job seekers and tourists. If you want to expand your employment prospects, then it will be a good idea to learn Arabic.
If you plan to pursue an educational program in Europe then do not rely on English alone! German is quite common in many European countries. It is also one of the EUs (European Union) official languages and overall the most widespread language in Europe. In the recent times, the free tuition and quality of education in Germany has compelled many international students to learn it.
If you want to learn a language other than German, then French is a good choice. There are currently over 220 million French speakers worldwide and the sixth most widely spoken language after Mandarin, English, Hindi, Spanish and Arabic. French is the primary language in Quebec (Canada) and improves an applicant’s score in Canada’s points-based immigration system.
