My name is Alessia and I am from Italy. I've been working in the finance sector since I started university, and over the years I have reached management level. My job requires me to speak two languages on a regular basis, something I found difficult in my first years in this institution.
I discovered, though, that the more effort I put into perfecting my second language, the better I got at a lot of things. Below are a few reasons why I think learning a second language can be advantageous to your career.
Improved communication skills
Without a doubt, speaking a second language will vastly enhance your communication skills. By practicing your speaking and writing skills in a second language, you'll also indirectly improve your general skills. I have found that I have become more comfortable speaking in front of people and dealing with day-to-day business.
Greater cultural understanding
Along with learning a language, you also learn about the cultures in which that language is spoken. This broadens your horizons and makes it easier for you to understand cultural differences. Personally, this has made me more adept at working with people from different countries and backgrounds.
As your skills in your new language grow, so will your confidence. That boost in confidence will flow into other parts of your life, increasing your motivation and your appeal at work.
Deeper awareness of your strengths and weaknesses
Learning a new language can be hard, but it is also rewarding. As you progress, you'll discover how you can best remember new ideas as well as where you may need more time to get things done. Knowing my strengths and weaknesses has helped me structure not only my learning but also my life in a way that is suitable to how I tick - I am sure you will have the same experience.
A second language makes you more attractive to employers
Speaking more than one language opens you up to professional possibilities because it expands the number of people you can communicate with, which is particularly important in today's global world. It's not just because you speak a second language; the whole array of soft skills you develop while learning a second language are beneficial across the board. Employers value having people on their team with the very skills you'll acquire as you work toward fluency in your second language.
