Foreign Languages

The ability to speak a second, or third, language not only allows you to travel the world more easily, but looks great on your resume, and comes in handy at parties. Language study is both rewarding and challenging at the same time. If you note that a young child can pick up a new language in under four years just by watching and listening, think what you can do with concentrated, focused study. The Foreign Service Institute has developed a series of rapid-learning programs in various languages, and there are iTunes sound files that are available to download. Another excellent resource is YouTube, where video lessons (in every language) are posted from around the world.
