English Courses Provider Kaplan Create Benefits of Learning Language Infographic

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2012) -

Editors Note: There is an infographic associated with this press release.

Kaplan International Colleges, a leading provider of English language courses, has created an engaging and educational infographic that explains the benefits of learning languages.

Scientific studies have proven that speaking more than one language has many benefits in terms of travel, love, intelligence and money. The infographic reflects these findings in a fun and interesting way.

There are numerous interesting facts such as 270 British dating agencies have agreed that people who speak a foreign language are more attractive to the opposite sex and multilingual employees can expect a salary uplift of up to 20% in certain jobs.

Kaplan employed Sergio Fernandez Gallardo, a creative graphic designer from Madrid, who worked on the Mayor of London's "A Summer Like No Other" campaign to turn their research into an informative work of art.

Candida DaFonseca, Kaplan's Content and Blog Editor, said: "It was so much fun to work on this infographic! The team was really great and we found a lot of fascinating facts about language learning.

"It was hard to narrow down what we included. We like creating new content to share with our audience. We hope that the design explains in a fun way why it is so important to learn a new language."

Kaplan has previously created a How to Learn English infographic which demonstrates their findings of the different ways that people learn English by being exposed to different media such as television, films and music.

The research revealed that 82% of people learned English from watching TV and 79% learned the language from watching films. Friends was the most popular programme and Harry Potter was the favourite film for helping people to learn English.
