In modern times, when science and technical knowledge are progressing so fast, all kinds of specialists need foreign languages in their work — teachers and doctors, politicians and actors, engineers and businessmen, and people from many other professions.
If a person doesn't know foreign languages, if he or she must wait for translations, he can't hope to know all the news in his field. If he can't use a computer, read the texts in English on the Internet and communicate with his partners by computer, he can hardly hope to be up to date in his work.
Very soon he will be months and even years behind the times.
"But," you will say, "how can I hope to learn so much? I have enough difficulty learning one language."
The answer is that when we have learned one foreign language, learning a second foreign language is much easier. Learning a third foreign language is much easier than learning the second, and so on.
