We all know that language learning is a challenge. It takes time and effort, but, like all hard things, it’s also one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself.

Language learning benefits range from opening doors to new cultures and experiences but also many cognitive benefits, from improving memory, and attention, to problem-solving skills.

With the help of language learning apps, starting your language learning journey has never been easier and more fun. So let’s go through some of the advantages of learning a language.

Directly tangible language learning benefits

🌎 Enhance your travel experiences

Picture this. You’re traveling and can talk to the locals, read signs and menus, and understand what’s going on around you. Doesn’t that sound like a much better experience than struggling, and searching for your words?

Learning a language can make your travels much more enjoyable. By empowering yourself to have conversations in the local language, you can make new friends and have a much more interesting and in-depth travel experience. With language learning apps such as Univerbal, you can start preparing for your trip before you even leave. Many other apps offer travel-specific phrases and vocabulary, so you can quickly learn what you need to know for your trip.

With Univerbal, you can practice talking in different environments you will find yourself in, like ordering at a restaurant or buying at the local supermarket or you can create your custom conversations if you already know a specific travel interaction you’ll have.

🧑‍💻 Improve your job prospects

Learning a new language can greatly improve your job prospects. In today's globalized world, knowing a second or even a third language can give you a competitive edge in the job market. Employers are always looking for employees who can communicate with clients or colleagues in different parts of the world.

Whilst some conversations can be held by email, many will require the ability to talk fluently to another colleague or to a potential client. Communication is always mentioned as one of the key capabilities within an organization. By becoming proficient in different languages, you can be an even stronger part of your team. You can even make yourself indispensable!

🧠 Exercise your brain

Last but not least, learning a new language can really improve your cognitive abilities. From problem-solving to decision-making which are highly valued by employers, to improved concentration, better memory, and academic performance. Were you never impressed by someone's unexpected ability to speak a foreign language? ;)

Even more benefits of learning a language

Of course, learning a new language can expand your cultural horizons. There’s no language without culture and there’s no culture without language. So by learning a new language, you can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of different cultures. Without even having to leave your house! :)

It can help you to be more empathetic and understanding towards people from different backgrounds. You will be able to create stronger bonds with people from other countries when you’re not always relying on English as the language to communicate.

If you can understand what the exact words of an expression mean, you’re more likely to also understand the cultural background of other countries. Plus, let’s not forget that learning a new language can expose you to new literature, music, and art forms that you may not have otherwise encountered. You might even find your new favorite artist!

The impact of language learning apps

So how can language learning apps help you achieve your language goals? It’s a very flexible and convenient way to learn. With language learning apps, you can learn at your own pace and on your own schedule.

With Univerbal, you can even have conversations about anything you are personally interested in. You don't have to worry about fitting in classes or finding a language tutor. By providing you with feedback and detailed explanations for each of your responses, you can get the same experience as if you had a language tutor sitting next to you. That way, you can be sure you will improve over time just as if you had taken in-person private lessons.

Language learning apps also offer a wide variety of content. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced learner, there's content available for everyone. Many apps offer courses that are made to be well-suited for a wide range of people. Whilst Duolingo games are tailored to beginners, Univerbal will be helpful if you have some basic understanding of the language you are trying to learn and improve, by speaking.

And then there’s the opportunities for community and collaboration that some language learning apps offer. Many apps have a social aspect, where you can connect with other learners and native speakers. On our Discord channel, we bring together people from all around the world. This can be a great way to practice your language skills and get feedback from others.

By joining our Discord, you will meet new people who are currently using Univerbal to learn a language. You can share the experiences and conversations you enjoyed, but also let us know what currently bothers you about the app. We’re working hard to provide you with the best experience possible and we will always try to implement direct user feedback.
