Why I study languages and why you should too
Share This Article:
I’ve been studying French since I started secondary school a full decade ago in 2005, and I have been studying Italian since I started university a mere two years ago. No one in my immediate family enjoyed or studied languages, and it wasn’t until I started to study French at GCSE that I actually began to enjoy the language. When I studied it A-Level, I realised that French was something I was good at. It helped that I was always encouraged by my excellent A-Level French teacher Mrs Clayson, who is one of my main inspirations in life. So, why do I study languages at university? Firstly, it’s because I am good at languages and I enjoy learning languages - especially the writing aspect. I have ambitions to learn other languages too. I know the basics of German and Spanish through Duolingo, and I know some Japanese words thanks to Karate. But I’d love to learn a language like Russian, Polish or Chinese one day.
