Want greater success in your career and your love life, as well as a healthy brain long into old age? 
 
想要在事业上和爱情生活中获得更大的成功,并且到暮年仍保持大脑健康?
 
The answer could be to learn another language. 
 
Or at least that's the case according to a majority of Americans and Britons polled in a new survey by language app Babbel. 
 
Apparently1, 71% of Americans and 61% of Britons believe speaking more than one language makes a person seem more attractive. 
 
Oui, c'est vrai! 
 
Of 3,000 English-speakers polled in the US and the UK, nine out of 10 admitted they'd learn a new language in pursuit of love.
 
About half said they'd dreamed about a romance with someone from another country. 
 
And moving from the bedroom to boardroom, about one in four Americans and Britons think that being monolingual has held them back professionally. 
 
So it's probably no surprise that one in eight confessed to having exaggerated their language skills on a resume. 
 
"Languages not only enable you to expand yourself in terms of perspective and skillset, but they also open doors and help you better understand other cultures and peoples," Miriam Plieninger, director of didactics at Babbel, tells CNN. 
 
"Knowing another language helps to break barriers and to connect on a special level of mutual2 understanding; be it while on the street, traveling, or in business."
