Learning Languages Helped Me To Be Where I Wanted To Be
Arsene Wenger saw the importance of learning English while he was a young man playing football. In this video he says:
Just to learn it (English), changed completely my life.
He goes on to talk about how he learnt the several languages he speaks, and the importance of languages in getting to know different cultures and kinds of people. Here is what he had to say:
It’s not only that you speak well, the language, but I felt when you get deeply into a language you know more about the culture and you understand (people) better.
And I felt every time I was in foreign country when I started to learn the language – I didn’t speak perfectly the language, but I always had the feeling that I understood them more.
You can watch the full interview below, but here are the important points that he mentions on how to learn a new language.
