The No Longer Monolingual Brits

Britain has long been #stereotyped as a lazy #nation who refuses to learn other languages because ‘everyone else speaks #English’. However, in recent years, research from #Travel Supermarket has shown one in four Brits try to learn the #local language whilst on holiday, and only 10% of Brits believe they needn’t bother learning other languages compared to 12% of our American cousins.

Whether it is to improve #job prospects or to maintain a cross cultural #romance, there has been a significant rise in the desire to #learn #languages in Britain. In our #globalised world many are #learning languages to have the #option of #working abroad, especially during this time of high unemployment in the UK. Furthermore, learning a new language not only improves our job prospects but also improves our #multi-tasking, #memory, #decision –making and even our own #language’s grammar as we become more aware of the things around us by learning about something different. So what are you waiting for?

With so many languages schemes and #classes out there, there are no excuses for not learning the basics of a language, even if it’s just so you can properly order a #baguette at a French bakery!
