because people speak English
From the infographic above, we can see that there are four main benefits from learning a language: love, travel, intelligence and money. And, it's interesting to see that being a bilingual person can increase our chances to get a better life. I remember I read research posted on an online news that bilingual students performed better in various tasks than monolingual students just like the result that was shown by the infographic.
If I was asked to determine, which is the most important benefit from those four benefits, I would choose intelligence than the other three. In my opinion, intelligence is the gate to reach another benefits like love, travel, and money.
For example, there is a person who wants to improve his writing by blogging. But sadly, he doesn't understand English or any other language except of his own native language, he only can learn about how to create a good blog from limited sources. It won't be a problem if his country has some great bloggers from whom he can learn. But maybe the situation there just like the situation in my country where there are still only few professional bloggers that really are successful.
However, if he could understand English or Spanish, he could get access to various sources and learn from various famous bloggers from all around the world. His knowledge would be improved much, which eventually enabled him to create a great blog. A great, popular blog or website could give many opportunities like sponsorship or job offers (in other words money).
I have read some bloggers had a chance to publish books or got some scholarships just because what they wrote in their blogs. Some others were invited to travel abroad and attended special events held by international companies.
What about love? Where a blogger, who could understand two or three languages, looks like an intelligent person. "You could ask many girls, I believe they would say that an intelligent man looks sexy," one of my female friends said to me. Well, I haven't asked any other girls yet about that, but at least one girl already stated that intelligent men look sexy.
You can change my example with another profession like teachers, photographers, doctors I think the chronology would be the same.
