Graduates of foreign language study can expect to find enhanced opportunities for employment in a wide variety of fields, including among others education, business, law, travel and tourism, public and political service, advertising, and international relations. The ability to communicate in another person’s language and to understand and appreciate cultural differences that characterize another person’s life experience, the ability to act as a conduit for translating and transmitting this information to others, the ability to operate in another person’s cultural space with confidence, these are skills that will provide you with an inestimable edge in a job market in which more global fluency will lead directly to more opportunity. Speaking another person’s language and possessing a mind practiced in viewing the world through the lens of another’s cultural reality will command a degree of respect and elicit a level of intimacy that a monolingual will never be able to match.
