Did you know, about 45% of English terms owes its origin to the French language? We often use a lot of words like soirée, avant-garde, chic, savoir-faire, beau, bon voyage, bric-a-brac, bon appétit, laissez-faire, mélange, etc. to add to the allure of the sentence. It is, therefore, considered as a ‘crème de la crème’ language widely spoken across the globe and the number of French-speaking people is only increasing. This language is not very difficult to learn as you will be already acquainted with a lot of terms if you’re an English language speaker.
Ever wondered why the song ‘Despacito’ is so popular? People across the world have been Spanish music enthusiasts since ages because of the enchanting melody and words. Again, English language owes its origin to a lot of Spanish words and is the most widely spoken in the US after English.
- Chinese or Mandarin
Not a lot of people know this, but Chinese or Mandarin (and not English) is the most widely spoken language in the world. Chinese translators earn a lucrative sum and hence, learning this language will definitely reap excellent benefits.
There are about 545 million speakers across the globe and is one of the most-spoken languages that owes its origin to the Indian subcontinent. India and the US are strong business partners in many verticals and learning this language can be useful in communicating with a broad spectrum of non-English speaking Indians.
Bengali is often considered to be the “sweetest language in the world” and learning such a language has its own perks. If you know Hindi, then learning Bengali will not be an uphill task. With over a whopping 261 million speakers across the world, Bengali is predicted to be the third most-spoken language in the countries with flourishing economies.
This can be a choice for those who are ready to challenge the difficulty level of learning a foreign language.
