Why is it important to be bilingual?
Being bilingual allows you to communicate better with other people. It can aid you in school, business, travel, or everyday life.
Many people find that learning a second language also helps them improve their first. Phonetics, grammar points, and other things that native speakers usually take for granted, you will start to notice in your own language after learning about them in another.
It's important to be bilingual because it knowing two different languages or more you can communicate with other people from different places you go who speak different languages. You have a way better chance of getting a good job because if you have to work with people who speak a different language or if people who speak a different language switch over to your company then you will be able to communicate with them way better! If you have to move to a new town and go to a new school and all that there is is a french school then you will already know the language!
