Forums - General Discussion - How would a different language benefit me?

They are offering a Manderian class at school. This will be free of charge and get me a minor in Chinese language after 2 years. How could this benefit me?

It's self-explanatory, isn't it? Any new language anyone learns is going to reap the same benefits... being able to interact with people from a different place and culture, and potentially being able to move there or something.

Yeah it is, but how would that work? It's just an interesting idea.

Depending on the area and the type of job, you can use additional languages as weight for your resume - especially with some jobs consisting of multi-language support.

In the US, specifically the south, Spanish is an important language to have especially if you go in the route of a social worker.

My Japanese teacher from high school said Japanese helped him a lot since he worked as a translator for American and Japanese fishermen. Netted him (pun intended) $35 an hour for his first job



If china ever invades the mainland US which is quite likely over the next two to three decades, I'm sure knowing some mandarin would come in handy, no matter which side you came down on.



Chinese is gonna be pretty useful in a few years. 2 years of study should be enough to plead for your life in front of your new overlords.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Pretty much this.
