InnoBlog: 5 reasons to learn a foreign language during your master’s!

Learning a new language may be the last thing on our minds as we juggle the many responsibilities of being an engineering student. However, I have found that knowing a foreign language has proven to be very beneficial in terms of information retention (which helps a lot for exams) as well as in our professional lives.

 

At EIT InnoEnergy Master School, we are also immersed in different cultures while studying which only makes it that much more important for me. In my case, I decided to take the opportunity to learn Portuguese during my first year of the Master’s in Energy Storage at IST in Lisbon. This is something I would have never imagined doing and yet it is filling me with joy! So, here are five benefits of learning a foreign language during your studies. I hope this triggers you to explore a new language as your master’s with EIT InnoEnergy.
