1. To improve your marketability in today's global job market....
-Almost any career that you can think of is affected by globalization. Today's employers are looking for workers who understand the global environment, who can work in a diverse environment, who can relate to people from other cultures, and can speak a second language.
2. To broaden your horizons and appreciate the diverse world
-Every day, even in American's heartland, you come into contact with people who come from a different background than your own. Imagine how much more exciting these interactions would be if you understood the culture or language of their home country? What kinds of new friendships could you form? What new travel opportunities would become available to you? Once you understand the diversity of the world, there is nowhere that you can't go to experience and enjoy new things.
3. To promote understanding and cooperation amongst the World's people.
- There is no place in the world that is safe from intolerance. Every day, conflicts arise because people from different backgrounds and different cultures fail to understand one another. Imagine the kind of world we could share if only we learned to understand and respect one another.
