Video: Why learn a language?

Author: Todd Boruff

Learning a second, or third, language is transformative for Notre Dame students.

Developing the ability to read, speak, and comprehend Arabic, Chinese, or any of the other 15+ languages that Notre Dame offers, improves memory and problem-solving skills. It also deepens appreciation of cultures, enhances travel experiences, boosts confidence, and expands understanding of the world. 

Bilingual graduates have exciting and rewarding career options. And, as a bonus, they earn 5-20% more than people who speak one language. 

Enjoy exploring the world’s languages, and broadening your world.
