One of the main reasons students study foreign languages is to prepare themselves for an academic journey or career in a foreign country. Foreign language majors often require students to be knowledgeable in the country's culture and history as well.
Studying a foreign language teaches students to have a better understanding of and compassion towards other cultures and identities. Skills like communication and dealing with abstract concepts are practiced when you study a foreign language. It also enhances a person's listening skills.
If a student is considering taking a double major in college, majoring in a foreign language can be beneficial for a student's career goals. Students are more competitive as job candidates when they pair majors from entirely different fields, because doing so demonstrates the vast range of skills they can apply to different aspects of the job.
Learning a foreign language is more than just memorizing vocabulary and learning grammatical rules, but also relating to unique cultural norms, social systems and cognitive processes. Understanding these cultural-specific contexts along with linguistic principles of a particular culture is central to effective language acquisition.
