Why Every Gentleman Should Speak More Than One Language

There are many great reasons why gentlemen should learn more than one language. The first is just to expand horizons. For example, if you're a guy who loves to travel, you'll find that learning a foreign language gives you the power to communicate with strangers in strange lands. What kind of lady doesn’t get impressed when you speak a foreign language to the waitress at your first date?

This may be very exciting and may even lead to romance. Those men who do love traveling will find that it's a lot easier to connect with alluring residents of foreign countries, once they are able to bust through the language barrier.

If you want to boost your "game" in faraway places, learning a language will be a great way to do it. Some Americans know a bit of Spanish already, through their school studies. If you're American, improving your grasp of Spanish will help you to chat up senoritas in some exotic and fun locales, from Cancun to Barcelona to Havana and beyond!

 

You'll Have More Job Opportunities

As well, knowing more than one language may allow you to enjoy a range of new career opportunities. Men who are bilingual are in demand in the workforce. In fact, it may even be possible to work in another country, as long as your knowledge and fluency of another nation's language are high enough.

Lots of employers are looking for people who know more than one language. For example, these days, when businesses are looking to get more dollars from China, where the economy is very robust, knowing one of the most popular Chinese languages, such as Mandarin, may put you in line for a lucrative sales job.

If you're looking to learn a language in order to get ahead in business, research your niche extensively. Look for the right language, based on market research and what prospective employers are looking for. Then, sign up for an online class or a class which is taught in your community.

It will take time to master something new. It's harder to learn languages once we're adults. However, people do it every day and it's actually fun. If you want to socialize in the new language, look for meetups and other social gatherings in your area even an A.A. meeting works fine. These will be great places to brush up on your skills.



(The Cold War may be over but that doesn't stop James Bond to order a martini in Russian.)

 

You'll Appear More Sophisticated

In general, knowing languages gives men a cosmopolitan, sophisticated air which is really attractive to employers, as well as to a host of other people. Just picture 007, who knows how to order his favorite martini in any language, no matter where he is on the earth, and you will get a general idea. That’s also one key component to why he represents the perfect gentleman.

If you want Bond-style glamor, impressing people with your foreign language mastery will definitely be a great way to get it! It's all about showing off your new skills a little bit at appropriate moments. For example, using a French phrase during English conversation may impress certain types of people very much!

Now that you know why a gentleman should speak more than one language, you'll be ready to decide which language is really right for you.
