Hi Deborah!

Knowing more than language helps you stand out - something to talk about during interviews. It's difficult mastering one language so if you're able to do that with more than one it can show that you have serious skills!

But I would also say that it really depends on the career. If you're planning on conducting international business, teach overseas, work abroad or work for a government agency, or become a translator then yes, additional language will definitely be useful.

Hi Deborah, Languages are always an asset whether it's professionally or privately. It allows you to communicate with different people, different cultures as a local. What better way to travel the world, knowing you will be able to communicate with all types of people. From a work perspective, it can only be seen as an asset in this very small world. Today we tend to forget that not everyone speaks English. If you can learn several languages at school and then go to the countries to get up close with language. Learn and best of luck in your future career. Bonne chance. Viel Glück
