Language is central to our experience as social beings and a source of significant expressive and interpersonal power. Becoming fluent in a second language and understanding how language works are key skills in a global economy as well as central to effective communication in more local settings. People who are able to communicate effectively are highly valued by employers and sensitivity and insight into the speech and language of others allows for more sophisticated and nuanced responses to their needs.
