Six Reasons to Learn a Language

If you are looking for your next project, challenge or a new hobby, then now is the perfect time to try learning a new language with Kent Adult Education. Here are six reasons why you should...

1. Try something totally new or improve existing skills

KAE has a whole host of beginners Language courses for you to try your hand at. Choose from French, German, Italian, Spanish and many more. If you are looking to improve your existing skills, then there are intermediate and advanced courses to suit you.

2. Learn from expert tutors

It is much easier to learn your chosen language by speaking with others rather than by yourself. KAE's expert tutors have years of experience and many of them are native speakers, helping you to pick up your chosen language in no time at all, teaching you to converse in native terms.

3. Interact and discuss with others in a real time online environment

Most KAE Language courses are delivered online. This enables you to learn from the comfort of your own home, whilst being able to interact and speak to others doing the same course in real time. Your tutor will be able to talk to you and the rest of your class directly and can 'screen share' to show you any learning aids or course documentation.

4. Discover new cultures and different ways to communicate

Learning a language is not just about speaking, it is about different cultures and ways of living. Your expert tutor will help you to immerse yourself in all of this, giving you a full and rounded experience. This will ultimately help you pick up your chosen language quicker.

5. Stimulate your mind and improve your critical thinking skills

There are many other benefits that learning a language offers. It is not just about learning a new skill or challenging yourself. Learning can also stimulate your mind and help to improve your critical thinking skills, through discussion, conversation, giving and receiving feedback. Taking up and enjoying new experiences and hobbies also has numerous wellbeing benefits.

6. Prepare for a holiday (subject to restrictions)

One of the reasons to learn a language is to help you prepare for a holiday or trip abroad. Restrictions are ever-changing but at some point, you may wish to start planning or book a trip to another country. Learning to communicate and to make yourself understood can be key to having an enjoyable and stress-free break.
