With your new perspective you can look closely at phrases like “I’ll give it a go” and see how bizarre they are.
You know what ‘give’ means and you know what ‘go’ means but why do they combine to create an idea like ‘try’ something for the first time?
But I can say that opportunities will open up to you and in ways you didn’t expect. But, now I can say I’m relieved I could learn Spanish from English and not the other way around.
If you want to find out what is possible, start as soon as you can (maybe before you read the rest of this article). When you learn a second language, you will start to see things—such as everyday English phrases—with a brand new point of view.
I will preface that previous sentence by saying that the following list is a combination of reasons why you should consider learning a second language (in general) and also why you should specifically learn Spanish. A ‘door’ could represent new opportunities for work, new opportunities for adventure, new opportunities for love, new opportunities for self discovery or new opportunities for growth.
This list isn’t presented in any particular order but the last 4 have been particularly strong motivators for me. I can’t say for sure what opportunities will present themselves for you if you do decide to learn a second language.
You could find fly-in-fly-out work for companies that run location based projects in areas such as South America.If someone says “my parents gave a present to my friends and me”, it’s correct!This is just one small example of how you can re-discover the English language or maybe properly learn it for the first time.I realised that my view of the world had been shaped by one small cultural corner.And if I wanted to see things from a different perspective I would have to take my blinkers off.
If I do eventually visit another country, I can always hire an English guide. I couldn’t imagine what I would discover and the people I would meet.
