POWERFUL BENEFITS OF BEING BILINGUAL

More Job Opportunities

71% of North American recruiters believe that being bilingual will be crucial in the next 5 years.

Jobs that require a second language reward a minimum 20% increase in salary.

Employment of interpreters and translators is projected to grow 46% by 2022. Other fast growing language fields include healthcare, tourism, national security, and education.

Brain Development

Bilingual children outperform children who speak only one language in problem-solving and creative thinking. 

Students who complete at least four years of foreign language study score more than 100 points higher on each section of the SAT.

The benefits continue into adulthood, as those who speak two or more languages experience a slower onset of cognitive decline from aging.

THE POWER OF MANDARIN

The Language of Business

Mandarin will be the most spoken language in the world in 2021 with over 1.2 billion speakers.

China is the United States' #1 trading partner in goods and third largest trading partner overall, trading over 558 billion with the US in 2019.

China is the second largest economy in the world with a nominal GDP of 9.2 trillion USD, providing over 775 million jobs to mandarin speakers.

THE STRENGTH OF SPANISH

The Language of Diversity

Spanish is the official language of 20 countries around the globe with over 500 million Spanish speakers worldwide.

The US Census Bureau estimates the US will have 138 million Spanish speakers by 2050, making it the biggest Spanish-speaking nation on Earth.

The combined GDP of all countries with Spanish as the official language topped  4.7 trillion USD.
