The Bilingualism in the Workplace infographic describes the many advantages of multilingual people, not only for traveling but in the workforce as well.

According to the Bilingualism in the Workplace infographic, employers take into consideration the fact that applicants can speak more than one language. The advantages of bilingualism are becoming a greater asset, especially when it suggests a greater learning curve than the monolingual candidates.

Despite the fact that there are over 6,000 languages and cultures all over the world, Asian languages such as Chinese and Japanese are the ones increasing in popularity among younger generations. While there are definitely the more dominant choices, older and younger generations should consider the ‘less popular’ languages, which may become one of the greatest assets in the future, especially if the company in mind hopes to expand in that region.
