Why to learn a foreign language?

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe:
Those who know no foreign language knows nothing of their mother tongue.

How many languages you know - that many times you are a person.

Ralph Waldo Emerson:                                                                                           
No man should travel until he has learned the language of the country he visits. Otherwise he voluntarily makes himself a great baby, - so helpless and so ridiculous.
Roger Bacon:
Knowledge of languages is the doorway to wisdom.

Do you still question the necessity of learning another foreign language?
Check this video

How many languages would you like to speak? Watch a video of a 20-year-old Alex who speaks 11 languages fluently. Can you guess what languages he speaks?

While watching, try to answer the following questions:

1. What is Alex's favourite language?
2.  What is the best way for Alex to learn a foreign language?
