It's not just about communication; it's about understanding the nuances of different cultures, a skill that will set you apart in an increasingly interconnected and globalized professional landscape. Your ability to navigate and appreciate linguistic diversity will be a valuable asset in any career path you choose.

Zukünftige IE-Absolventen möchte ich ermutigen, das Erlernen von Sprachen als eine lebenslange Fähigkeit zu betrachten. Es geht nicht nur um Kommunikation, sondern auch darum, die Nuancen verschiedener Kulturen zu verstehen - eine Fähigkeit, die Sie in einer zunehmend vernetzten und globalisierten Berufswelt auszeichnen wird. Ihre Fähigkeit, sich in der sprachlichen Vielfalt zurechtzufinden und sie zu schätzen, wird sich in jeder Karriere, die Sie einschlagen, als wertvoll erweisen.

Learning a language also allows us to better rediscover our own language and understand a culture that is foreign to us. This is precisely what I feel when I learn a language or when I teach my language. Questioning yourself, trying to understand the rules, laughing, sometimes getting discouraged, progressing... These are all enriching stages in the process of learning a language.

Apprendre une langue nous permet également de mieux redécouvrir notre propre langue et d’appréhender une culture qui nous est étrangère. C’est justement ce que je ressens quand j’apprends une langue ou lorsque j’enseigne ma langue. S’interroger, comprendre pourquoi, rire, se décourager parfois, progresser sont autant d’étapes enrichissantes dans l’apprentissage d’une langue.
