  • Even with basic knowledge of a language you can interact with native speakers, which offers a whole new perspective on certain things. It also provides insights into a new culture and the possibility to engage with people from other countries.

 

  • You might take delight in learning a language (especially with other participants/learners, who encourage each other).
