How about keeping your brain healthy?
Research has shown that the merits of studying languages can lead to heightened concentration and conversational abilities as well as higher levels of cognitive developments including creativity, reasoning and problem-solving skills.
But these are just some of the many benefits of language learning…
The practical side of learning another language is the ease in which you can communicate with people from around the world – whether that’s at home or away. Being able to travel or welcome visitors without barriers can lead to more fulfilling interactions and experiences.
Immersion in other languages also enables a deeper understanding of other cultures and opens up a whole new world of books, film, art and music.
And of course, language learning, in small groups, with hands-on communicative activities, is fun!
The University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Open Learning has the largest selection of language courses in Edinburgh. These are offered from Beginners level and many continue through to advanced levels.
So whether you’ve always dreamed of learning a language, want to refresh your skills or become a more confident speaker, there really is something for everyone!
