Wrong synonym.) of another country is for travelling or to gain a job in some other nation while some others believe that these are not only the only (wrong placement of only changes the meaning of the sentence.) reason to learn a new language other than mother tongue. This essay agrees that one learn another a foreign language is beneficial not only for securing a job but also out of their to pursue a passion and an interest (maintain parallelism in “not only ….., but also ……” construction) to explore outside world and being multilingual increases intellectual and cognitive skills.

Firstly, people prefer to learn an alien language as it increases the chance of employment in today’s economy and multilingual people are able to communicate and interact within in multiple diverse communities which is a valuable asset in an employee’s skill set. Moreover, it even increases your (whose?) tourist destinations. Travelling to a foreign country becomes much easier if you can speak the language of that country and it even enable you to explore the culture and traditions in a much deeper way. (Moreover, travelling is convenient if a person can speak local language and dialects. It helps in exploring the culture and traditions of the country.) For example, when an interview for staff nurse in Kuwait was held, I was selected as i know to I could speak Arabic fluently and it helped to enhance my career in that field.

However these are not only the only reason to learn other languages. Acquiring  a second language improves your memory and increases your attention span. Furthermore, it develops intellectual skills and cognitive skills.

To conclude, being multilingual is a great opportunity to conquer the outside world and there are various reasons for learning languages other than tourism and job for learning laguages. It increases ones creativity and even helps in creating cross cultural friendship along with developing intellectual and cognitive skill.
