5 Reasons You Should Learn a Foreign Language | E-Neighborhood Advisor



With globalization at its height, knowing one or
two secondary languages has become more
than a simple feat of high class and intelligence
but also a strict requirement in many
occasions. Whether it’s for professional, social
or personal reasons, learning at least one
foreign language is a must for anyone that
wants to keep his or her head up high in
today’s society.

Let’s take a focused look on 5 of the main
reasons that should turn you towards learning
a foreign language.

1. Professional Requirement
This is often the main reason one would learn
a foreign language. Many professions require
the knowledge of at least one or two foreign
languages, depending on the field of the job.

Although English is the main international
language (and one that is present the most
often in job descriptions), knowing a secondary
might also prove vital. Most jobs may ask that
you know another international language such
as French, Spanish or German or a business-
specific language such as Chinese, Japanese,
Russian and so forth.

2. Social Bonus 
Yes, knowing one or more foreign languages is
definitely a social bonus. Knowing a foreign
language can be literally a social blessing is
when meeting a person from another culture or
country whose language you can speak.
They’ll be extremely impressed by and grateful
for your ability to talk with them through their
own native tongue. If the other person happens
to be part of a business meeting, this
impression can turn to a successful business
partnership, bringing you both professional and
social satisfactions.

3. Family Communication
Those in relationships formed between people
of diverse nationalities often understand each
other through a commonly known international
language such as English. However, they’ll
soon want to start learning the other persons
mother tongue, not only for a better
communication, but also out of respect for their
partner.

4. Personal Satisfaction
Learning a foreign language is one of the
highest personal intellectual goals that one
could have. Think about a difficult puzzle, or
math problem that takes months if not years of
constant studying in order to be solved. The
process of solving it may be a hard, arduous
one but the joy at the end is well worth it. The
same is true with learning a foreign language:
the learning process is not easy and you’ll
have many small issues and problems to tackle
along the way. If you keep the problem in sight,
however, and if you don’t lose interest in it, the
chances of solving it are extremely high and
the intellectual fulfillment that you get at the
end is highly satisfying.

5. Keeping Your Mind Healthy
It’s been scientifically proven that the process
of learning a new language stimulates your
brain in such a way that it will make learning
other subjects, including math, physics,
chemistry and so forth easier. Learning a new
language requires the memorizing and
understanding of several thousand new words
and concepts, which offers your brain a good
training for future occasions where memorizing
is a must. After studying a foreign language
you’ll have better results with studying for
exams, with information assimilation and
generally, with keeping your mind healthy and
active even at older ages.

What language are you interested in tackling?


P.S. Here's a joke for you!
What’s the least spoken language in the world?

Sign language.

You Might Be A Chocoholic If … | E-Neighborhood Advisor



chocoholic (Noun) (def): a person
who has or claims to have an addiction
to chocolate.

 If you have more than 2 secret
stashes of chocolate candy, you
might be a chocoholic. (Be
honest.)
 If your top 3 favorite candies all
have chocolate in them, you
might be a chocoholic.
 If you have more than 4 books at
home on chocolate, you might be
a chocoholic.
 If your favorite dessert is
chocolate cake with chocolate
frosting and chocolate ice-cream
on the side, then you might be a
chocoholic.
 If you name chocolate as one of
the seven wonders of the world,
you might be a chocoholic.
 If you bookmark more than 2
websites on the health benefits of
chocolate, then you might be a
chocoholic.
 If your favorite movie is Charlie
and the Chocolate Factory, you
might be a chocoholic.
 If you own more than one
chocolate-related T-Shirt, you
might be a chocoholic. (If you
actually wear that chocolate T-
Shirt in public, just admit it. You
are a chocoholic.)
 If you name your first-born child
after your favorite chocolate
candy – then you are a definite,
full-fledged chocoholic.

If you are a chocoholic, there you may
want to try one of two possible cures:

CURE #1: Chocolate Overdose

In several cases a chocolate overdose
will effectively kill your chocolate bug
for a period of time. At some point, too
much chocolate in a given month will
cure your addiction – for at least a
week. Your personal chocolate
overdose limit will depend on your
level of addiction.


CURE #2: Chocolate Substitution 

Chocolate substitution is another
option, if the chocolate overdose
doesn’t work. It involves starving your
chocolate bug by offering it
wholesome candy substitutes. The
concept is that your body will gradually
forget its craving for chocolate.
If one of these cures doesn’t work,
well, at least you would enjoy the
attempt . . .

By the way, here are some great links
on the health benefits of chocolate. You
may want to bookmark them in case
someone tries to convince you that
chocolate is not good for you.

7 Health Benefits of Dard Chocolate
https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/7-health-benefits-dark-chocolate

What are the health benefits of dark
chocolate?

Are there health benefits from
chocolate?
https://www.heart.org/en/news/2019/02/12/are-there-health-benefits-from-chocolate

Well, of course it makes sense that
chocolate really is healthy. Chocolate is
made from a bean – and so, wouldn’t
that be like eating a vegetable?


P.S. Did you know . . .
Chocolate comes from cocoa,
Cocoa comes from a tree,
Trees are plants,

Chocolate = salad.
