there are many reasons why everyone should learn a foreign language.
firstly, learning a language of another country helps one understand its culture. language becomes a peephole to look at the nation’s culture, its traditions and its history. italian film director federico fellini says, "a different language is a different vision of life".
research has shown that having studied a foreign language one can understand one’s own language better. it deepens the understanding of one’s own culture. general language skills improve after studying foreign languages.
another thing that talks of the importance of foreign language study is touring to foreign countries.

the only mrs. meadows we knew; george’s wife was only known as mrs. george.) ‘’whoever do you think is coming here today? ’’ she asked me. ‘’uncle george meadows.’’ ‘’why, i thought he was dead.’’ i heard the story of uncle george meadows and tom, his younger brother, had both courted mrs. meadows when she was emily green, fifty years and more ago, and when she married tom, george
had gone away to sea. mrs. george asked me to look in and see him. of course i accepted. i found the whole family assembled. when i arrived, they were sitting in the great old kitchen, mrs. meadows in her usual chair by the fire, very upright, and i was amused to see that she had put on her best silk dress. on the other side of the fireplace sat an old man. he was very thin and he had lost nearly all his
teeth. i shook hands with him. it was strange to look at them, these two old people who had not seen one another for half a century, and to think all that long time he had loved her and she had loved another. ‘’have you ever been married, captain meadows? ’’ i asked. ‘’i said i’d never marry anyone but you, emily, and i never have.’’ he said this as mere statement of fact. ‘’well, one
thing you’ve not done, george, as far as i can see,’’ said mrs. meadows, ’’and that’s to make a fortune.’’ ‘’i’m not one to save money. but one thing i can say for myself: if i had the chance of going through my life again i’d take it.’’ i looked at him with admiration and respect. he was a toothless, crippled, penniless old man, but he had made a success of live, for he had
enjoyed it. next morning when i came to the garden i saw mrs. meadows picking flowers. ‘’ how’s caption meadows? ’’ i asked her. ‘’when lizzie took him in a cup of tea this morning she found he was dead.’’ ‘’dead? ’’ ‘’yes. died in his sleep. well, i’m glad he came back,’’ she said. ‘’after i married tom meadows and george went away, the fact is i was never quite sure
that i’d married the right one.’’
