For me learning how to speak English really helped because once I learned how to speak English I could understand the music I like, English movies, English tv shows, and I could talk to people from other countries who come here to Germany and can't speak the language. Plus most videos and stuff on the internet are in English so learning English made my understanding of things online much more broad. I also learned Spanish because I felt like it, and it useful when I visited Spain plus it helped me understand some things in French, Italian, languages close to Spanish. For me it's fun to learn a new language because it gives you wider communication level and it helps you understand a little bit about the culture of the language you learn.

Compared to people that speak one language, adults who speak multiple languages are more likely to:

  • have higher general intelligence 
  • be better at planning, prioritizing, and decision making )
  • score higher on standardized math, reading, and vocabulary tests 
  • be more perceptive of their surroundings
  • avoid falling for marketing hype 
  • have better focus, concentration, and attention

I totally agree, learning a new language can make you smarter...or at least "faster" than only-native speakers 'cause your are forced to train your brain to switch from one language to another, remembering words, grammar, idiomatic expressions and so on! The best side of the story is that, by knowing a new culture, you are allowed to explore a new world, broadening your point of views in life..and it is so exciting!
