Proficiency in other languages enriches personal growth and gives you a deeper appreciation of cultural differences. Those who have studied a second language are attractive for a range of jobs, especially those involving travel; overseas postings and teaching; along with opportunities in sectors that have foreign-language clients, markets and stakeholders. Your major or diploma in languages can focus on one or more modern languages; sign language; or classical languages like Ancient Greek or Latin.
