|What is a very important skill a person should learn in order to be successful in the world today? Choose one skill and use specific reasons and examples to support your choice.
From a psychological point of view, a tendency to learn new skills is an intrinsic characteristic of human kind. According to a survey conducted by the “Psychology Reviews” journal, there is a 70% lesser possibility for people trying to learn a new skill to get Alzheimer in comparison with others. I firmly believe that one can benefit from learning a new language in a variety of issues.
I do not hesitate to say that learning a new language helps people build up confidence. Not to forget, from a psychological point of view these people are more confident and straightforward. Needless to say, this skill is a basic requirement for pursuing both an education and a career due to the fact that all people need it in order to obtain an admission from a university or company.
On the one hand learning a language is quite challenging but on the other hand it will certainly give a person perspective. I am of the belief that not only it will change our outlook on life but also is enjoyable when a person is able to communicate with foreigners. In addition, they will enjoy it due to the fact that they can get themselves across in another language.
It is unjustifiable to say that learning new language is just useful for communication. The chief reason is that through learning language an individual is able to come into contact with other skills. To illustrate my point I need to remind you of computer which is far much easier to comprehend for people learned English.
Having considered this matter from different angles, one is left with no other choice than to think that learning another language in unavoidable these days. Not to mention, not only is beneficial for communication but also for one’s personality and prosperity as well.
I will be glad if you please edit my essay.
