According to scientific experiments, when healthy adults learn a second language, there are physical and functional changes in the brain. These positive changes increase cognitive abilities. Some of the most significant results of being multilingual are the ability to better adjust to environmental changes, and experience less cognitive decline with aging, while also delaying certain mental problems that the seniors face such as dementia for years.
Our motivation for learning English is often not limited to mental abilities of course.
Speaking a different language brings many professional opportunities. You might want to become more employable, aim for a higher paying job, negotiate a higher salary at your current job, or start a new venture altogether. You might want to relocate or work in a different country, or do business with international firms. If you are owner of a small business, you might want to extend your audience globally and offer products and services to more people.
You don’t have to do business to find a great reason to learn English. You might be looking for a romantic adventure, explore beyond what is familiar, make new life-long friends, get to know the world and the people from many cultures that inhabit it.
There are many obvious reasons, and others that are unique to your goals in life.
