This can give one’s child more choices when it comes to choosing further career options. They will also be free to choose which university or college they want to go apply for, in which country, depending on the languages they speak.
Being fluent in an additional language can make a candidate stand out among fellow employers. It also gives wide opportunities and those without these skills may miss out on.
