Choosing the right path for foreign language study
Foreign Language Study
Top foreign languages to study:
- Mandarin Chinese
Reasons to study Spanish
Another factor in favor of Spanish is that it is one of the easiest languages for children to learn. Since Spanish has Latin roots, there are many similarities to English.
Reasons to study French
Why does it make sense to study French? It is one of the most beautiful languages in the world. It is also one of the most utilized languages in art, poetry and literature, the culinary arts, and the fashion industry.
Like Spanish, French has its roots in Latin, so it has many of the same basic rules. There are also many similarities with English, including grammar, vocabulary, and phonology.
Reasons to study Mandarin Chinese
Chinese is quite different from the more familiar Latin-based languages such as Spanish and French. It is a tonal language, which uses pitch to denote word or grammar differences. The written language also uses pictures or characters rather than standard words.
