Whether you’re looking to rekindle a long-term partnership, bring some stability to a fresh romance or still searching for that significant other, learning a foreign language is sure way to boost your success rate. Foreign languages are just plain good for romance. Here’s 6 reasons why:
Tell someone you love them in a foreign language and it’s bound to sound that much sexier. Even picking up a new accent can help you, especially if you are improving your pronunciation in one of Europe’s most popular learning languages. A survey cited in the Independent suggested it’s still French, Italian and Spanish that are considered the most attractive accents.
The very act of learning and knowing a foreign language makes you more attractive to most people. So revealed a survey by Rosetta Stone and dating-site, OK Cupid, last year. They found that 73% of those aged 18 to 36 found someone who spoke a foreign language more attractive.
Struggling to make your way through a one-on-one date? Need something new to talk about?

Language class is the place that many a romance has kicked off. And today these romances can start online too. Rosetta Stone Coaching Sessions are great places to meet people who are learning the same language as you, for practise, friendship and maybe more….
There are few better excuses for a one-on-one date than practising your language skills. Getting a Language exchange partner is an increasingly popular way to supplement a course and also a great way to form new friendships. Intimacy guaranteed.
The Rosetta Stone approach to language learning is much-loved around the world, with five-star ratings in both the Apple and Google stores. The focus is on building your speaking confidence and conversational ability (date ready, you might say). Instead of translations, you learn the sights and sounds of the language, and how to pronounce phrases well.
