The world is opening up again, and many of us are thinking about taking our next big trip. Where to? Spain? Korea? Vietnam? Wherever you go, studying a language can make your fabulous trip even more fabulous.

According to Rosetta Stone, learning a new language can help you preserve and improve your brain function, memory, and problem solving skills.
