I believe this is a great reason to learn a foreign language. I am always up for a challenge and learning a new language would definitely be a challenge, so why not do it?

5 Food

For example, if you enjoy eating Chinese food, then you should take that enjoyment a bit deeper – past the food. Start learning about their culture and learn their language. This would make the food even more enjoyable – at least it does to me.

4 It’s a Required Course

Perhaps the foreign language is a required course in your university? If it is, then this would definitely be a great reason to learn it.

Do you plan on traveling to India, Spain, China or some other foreign place? If you do, then you should definitely learn their language first. You do not have to learn all of it before you go, but you should start learning how to say certain things and then take it from there.

Perhaps part of your family speaks the language, but you do not. You could also make new friends if you learned a new language.
