Hello everyone!
Over the last couple of weeks, I've made it one of my priorities to learn a new language and I have really been enjoying my experience and decided to share it with all of you here. So what follows is a whole bunch of reasons why you should also consider learning a new language.

when you're learning a language by yourself, it may be a little difficult at first but it's so much fun especially if you're going at your own pace and if you get stuck you can make internet friends who are fluent in the language you're learning and they might help you out. WHI is great for this. Or you could even take online classes

Boosts your confidence

due to the fact that I've been able to successfully learn and start speaking the new language, I'm more confident about doing it again and learning more languages

Allows you to indulge in an international culture like film, music, and literature
