Multilingualism = Why is important to speak Slovak:

Scholastic Achievement

Effect On First Language

Second language education significantly strengthens first language skills in areas of reading, English vocabulary, grammar and communication skills. The earlier the start, the greater the positive effect on the first language

Citizenship

Students studying a second language have superior cross-cultural skills and adapt better to varying cultural contexts.

Economic Potential

There is an urgent requirement for qualified speakers of languages other than English in areas of science, technology, medicine, human services and global commerce.

Health Benefits

In addition to the above benefits, learning languages is good for our health and well-being. Recent scientific studies on the brain have shown that learning a second language can help to slow memory loss or dementia.
