The benefits of learning English as a second language in 2021
The English language is one of the most commonly spoken languages and is often considered the most influential language in the world.
Whether you want to learn English to further your studies, your career, or your personal horizons, there are many benefits you can gain from attending our ESL course, which is free for our students and their families.
Improved Cognitive Abilities
Learning a second language is one of the very best ways to keep your brain active and challenged.
Studies have shown that the brain undergoes changes in electrical activity and even structure and size while learning another language that does not occur when learning any other type of task or skill.
Learning another language offers important cognitive benefits at any age, helping to keep the mind active and even reducing the risk of mental disease and slowing mental decline later in life.
Improved Communication Skills
When you learn English as a second language, you are learning new ways to think and express yourself through written and spoken words.
Learning multiple languages can help you communicate more clearly in any language as you learn more about how language itself works and how to use it to promote ideas and reach out to others in a variety of social and work situations.
Improved Social and Work Opportunities
ESL classes can open the door to new opportunities in life, whether you’d like to attend school or pursue a career in an English-speaking region of the world.
Knowing English can help you excel in a number of fields, particularly those in which English is a commonly-used form of communication, such as science, business, and engineering.
We fully understand just how important it is to be able to freely communicate with the people around you.
That freedom to learn from others and share your passions, combined with the benefits of ESL learning listed above is why we offer our ESL classes to our students and their families free of charge.

The benefits of taking an ESL course are clear. By improving your English skills you gain better access to education, greater earning potential, a better social life, and even better results from healthcare.
