Learning a new language

In my 16 years old life, I have learned three languages so far. I may not be an expert, but so far I am working on developing my vocabulary in those languages I can, and I even learn more and more for each and every day. I am currently talking German, Swedish and English. I've studied also Spanish for four years now but I do not think I can speak the language fluently because I have not learned so especially much those years. I would like to learn a fourth language because I think it's great to know several languages and it will be much easier for me in life when I travel for example.LyssnaLäs fonetiskt But the biggest reason for people wanting to learn a new language is probably that they would like to communicate with other people. And to be able to do that, you must at least learn English. The reason I wrote just English is that English is the most international language in the world and people speaks it all over the world. But the more languages you know the better it gets for you. The main benefits of learning more languages is that you will find it more easier to communicate with people from other countries, your business life would go a lot better and you will probably also have more contacts. But of course there are also drawbacks to this. Some of the most common disadvantages are that it is not so easy to learn an entirely new and foreign language. It takes quite a lot of time and it is simple to lose interest if it is not going so well in the beginning. But once you begin to learn, you will want to continue until you can speak fluently. It may also be very expensive to take language classes, but if you really are motivated into learning a new language, money will not be a major problem. Nowadays, people use translation services, but why loosing time by doing that, if you have the opportunity to learn the language instead?
