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 this Valentines. 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? A new language and culture is an endless source of interest and curiosity that you can share with your partner. Learn about the language and culture, then plan your next holiday together.
