As a student struggling every day to learn a second language, you may find yourself wondering if you will ever become fluent. It does seem like a long, difficult road, but eventually you will find yourself speaking, reading, listening, writing, and even thinking in English! This, of course, cannot be achieved without a great deal of studying, practicing, and lots of determination. Learning a second language can help you with your career, education, travel, self-esteem, and meeting new and interesting people who you might not have gotten to know if you didn’t speak English. Believe it or not, many celebrities became even more famous after they learned a second language. For instance, did you know that Celine Dion, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Charlize Theron, Heidi Klum, and Shakira all had to learn English as a second language? Other celebrities who are native English speakers are also fluent in a second language, such as Johnny Depp, Kobe Bryant, Kelly Clarkson, Sandra Bullock, and William Shatner.
