"Learn to speak a new language if want to make this Labor Day the first step to a great job and more money in 2014," states Mark Frobose, bestselling author of Power French Accelerated.


"Many Americans are either unemployed or underemployed and are competing for jobs in an increasingly competitive global market," Frobose explains. "Learning to speak and understand another language gives job applicants a leg up on the competition.

This Labor Day, Frobose offers up a series of practical and down-to-earth reasons why learning to speak a new language, especially Spanish, is one of the best investments anyone looking for a job can make.

"People who speak Spanish or another language fluently are an instant fit in an increasingly competitive and multilingual world," he explained.

Frobose, author of Audible's bestselling Power Spanish Accelerated, Power French, Power Italian, Power Portuguese, and Power Mandarin Chinese audio programs has been teaching and creating instructional language programs for years. He has his hand on the pulse of the impact that language instruction has had on his many students over time, and he offers the following reasons why learning to speak a new language is a sound investment for anyone who wants improved job opportunities after Labor Day 2014:

1. "When given a choice between a candidate who knows Spanish, Russian, Mandarin Chinese, or German, the candidate with Spanish speaking ability will usually be the most popular choice to fill the position unless the company has specific language needs in other languages," states Power Mandarin Chinese author Mark Frobose.

Reason: While many companies often need personnel with diverse language skills, the defacto default language of preference for employers is Spanish simply because of the numbers of Spanish speaking clients and businesses. "It's a statistical numbers game where Spanish trumps the competition by the sheer size and weight of 450 million Spanish speakers, many of whom reside in or near the United States," reports Frobose.

2. If there is a choice between two candidates of equal qualifications and one speaks several languages and the other does not, then the one who speaks more than one language almost always gets the job.

Reason: Employers correctly assume that the more language skills the employee brings to the table, the better it is for them. This is especially true for Spanish and Mandarin.

3. An English speaking applicant who is also at least conversational in Spanish, French, Italian, Russian or Mandarin Chinese will probably be chosen over the monolingual "English only" applicant, even if the company does not currently need a multilingual speaker on board.

Reason: It's commonly viewed as an insurance policy by employers to have someone on board who knows Spanish and other languages "just in case" he or she is needed. "The employer's attitude is you never know when this person's language ability will come in handy," says Mark Frobose, who also created's bestselling Power Portuguese Accelerated.
