Often people tout the benefits of learning another language in very valuable, albeit very general ways. Learning a foreign language helps us view things from another person's perspective. True.
Becoming familiar with another culture helps us grow as people when we step outside our comfort zone and try something new. Definitely true.
But could there be more benefits to learning a foreign language?
Something we might not have considered?
I wager that there are more benefits than these, and that there are some benefits specifically to learning German. Some of these I have shared with clients but I haven’t ever mentioned other places.
The next three blog posts are dedicated to these “secret” benefits to learning German and I’d be willing to bet that you hadn’t thought of a couple of these yet.
eine kurze Hausaufgabe:
Your homework before next Tuesday is to do a short brain storm: What could these “secret” benefits be? Schreiben Sie drei bis fünf Ideen. You can write them down in your Heft or save them in your phone and see if your prediction was true.
