Reasons to Learn English, Spanish, Mandarin, and Arabic

If you’re familiar with ReDefiners World Languages, you know that we’re passionate about providing foreign language opportunities. Language lessons offer more than the ability to communicate in another language, though. Being proficient in a second language benefits children and adults. Language learning can promote academic achievement, as well as social, cultural, and character development. All of these benefits lead to increased career opportunities as children become adults. Ultimately, we aim to create a better world by creating multicultural individuals who understand, value, and respect cultural differences.


If you’ve ever been on our website, you probably noticed that we only have a few languages. Unlike most foreign language programs, we only offer English, Spanish, Mandarin, and Arabic. We provide courses in these languages because they provide the most opportunities for our students.


Here are some of the opportunities if you speak English:

  • English is the official language of 67 countries and the official language for global institutions, such as the United Nations, European Union, and NATO.

  • Many consider English to be the world’s “second language” because around 400 million people speak it as their first language, and even more speak it as a second language. In fact, one in five know the language at least a little bit.

  • By learning English, you open yourself up to worldwide career opportunities, and you can connect with a large segment of the population.
