Online Languages CoursesKnowing a second language or taking up specialized courses on your mother tongue would make you more competitive in the job market. If you are working in a company where you deal with foreigners on a regular basis, your skill in another language would surely come in handy. There could also be opportunities for you to travel to other countries for foreign assignments which would greatly expand your horizon and enhance your career. Students of online language certificate programs are taught not only the language's systems, such as reading writing and speaking, but also the culture and history of the language. Although not always practical, travelling to countries where the language you are studying originated is another good way of supplementing your language studies and learning about the culture of the country from where the language came from.

Among the popular online language certificate programs are Hindi, Italian, German, French, Norwegian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Russian and Arabic.

Salaries of linguists would vary depending on the language of specialization, experience and education attainment. A translator can make anywhere from $37,056 to $50,299 on average per annum.
