Ever since I learned my first foreign language while living abroad in Germany, I have been interested (addicted) to learning other foreign languages and meeting people who speak other languages. It a wonderful thing to speak another language and communicate with others who do not speak your own native language.
Furthermore, learning another language is incredibly vital in today's world where a large portion of business is done cross-border. Due to the international nature of business, my love for languages helps my job performance as I must communicate with others from other countries on a regular basis. It is also fun and nice to surprise another person by speaking their language (even if just a little)!
