  • Learning an additional language is always a benefit. But which language to learn is the important question. First you have to decide your stream of field and find out where you would like to have your career. If you wish to settle in Switzerland or so, learning German is an added advantage and moreover it is a must. Similarly French, Spanish etc are the other languages which have great demand outside India to the western regions.

    If you wish to settle in GCC countries, then it is better to learn Arabic, as knowledge of that language gives you more opportunities and an employment in government sector. Interest to a language is very much essential to learn it.
