Russian, at first, may seem like a daunting language to learn- however it is well worth it. This article is going to explore this very issue: why should you learn Russian!
A culturally rich language
Firstly, Russian is spoken by a vast number of people. It is the eight most spoken language in the world, and the most spoken European language. Learning Russian opens up vast parts of Eastern Europe to you. In many Eastern European languages Russian is a second language, due to Russia’s extensive political influence. Furthermore, little English is spoken in these parts. If you want to get the most out of your travels, speaking Russian will be a massive boost. Once you’ve mastered Russian, it also makes other Slavic languages much easier.
Moreover, Russian is culturally rich. It gives you the chance to read the wonderful works of Dostoyevsky or Tolstoy in the original language. A huge 29 UNESCO World Heritage Sites can be found in Russia.
A language of the future
Learning Russia is a smart bet in terms of your personal job prospects, or for your business. An Alexika studyexamined the percentage of the world’s GDP done in each language. This found that Russian counts for 3.1% of the world’s GDP. Furthermore, the British Council ranked Russian among the top 10 most important languages to learn in the UK. This clearly demonstrates it’s role as a language of the future.
