Some people say that the only reason for learning a foreign language is in order to travel to or work in a foreigncountry. Others say that these are not the only reasons why someone should learn a foreign language.
Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
 
Learning a different language from own is considered in many different ways by people. Someones think that a new languague is useful only if you will move in a new country, someone else believes it is just a tool to your job in an international enviroment. These different opinions hit with opposite biliefs : many persons reveal how studying a new language give you the possibility to have a different view of the world. I believe there is a part of truth in each opinion and in this essay they will be explained.
There is not doubt about the idea of foreign language is a tool. It is obvious that if you want to move in a new nation or continent ,you should be able to speak with the inhabitants of this and the only way possibile is to know the country’s language. An more interesting aspect is the consideration to learn it for your job and career. In these days ,the globalization has reduced the walls between the different countries. This has meant a major mobility of workers in all world. As a consequence of this, speaking more than one language has become a requirement that employers ask to their workers,and so the view of foreign language as a tool is not wrong
However, this could mean a reductive role of a language and it is what some people don’t agree. In fact, each tongue has a relevant story behind its. For istance, nonetheless Latin is spoken anymore, many italian students study its today becaouse studying the language of ancient Rome allows them to know the culture of their country. The most important philosophers of history were roman or lived during the roman empire. Throught studying latin, the italian students have had the opportunity to improve their knowledge of history of cities where they live today and ancient romans lived hundred years ago.
To sum up, learning a foreing language today could allow you to move in different nations and develope your career in an international prospective,in a world without borders, but it also mean to obtain a better knowing of country’s culture and become a part of a different society.
