  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. Apparently, 71% of Americans and 61% of Britons believe speaking more than one language makes a person seem more attractive.

  答案或许是,学习另一种语言。至少大多数的美国人和英国人是这么认为的,这个数据来源于语言应用软件Babbel的一项新调查。显然,71%的美国人和61%的英国人认为,会说不止一种语言似乎使人更具吸引力。

  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.

  接受调查的3000名说英语的英美人士中,有九成承认他们愿意为了追逐爱情而学习一种新的语言。约一半的人表示,他们曾梦想着和来自另一个国家的人拥有一段浪漫爱情。从家庭事务来到工作事务上,约有四成的美国人和英国人认为,只会一种语言阻碍了他们的职业发展。因此,有八成人承认在简历中夸大了自己的语言技能,这也不怎么意外。

  And which languages have the most sex appeal--in UK and US eyes, at least? Well, the Babbel guys asked that in a previous survey.

  那么,在英国人和美国人的眼里,哪种语言最性感呢?Babbel的调查人员在此前的调查中问过这个问题。

  French was considered the "sexiest" language by respondents on both sides of the Atlantic (US 40%, UK 32%) and the hottest foreign accent in which to hear English (US 38%, UK 40%).

  两国的受访者(40%的美国人,32%的英国人)认为法语是“最性感”的语言,同时带有法语口音的英语也是最性感的外国口音(38%的美国人,40%的英国人)。

  So being multilingual can make you more appealing, more successful and more compassionate. And it's also good for your health.

  所以,会说多种语言可以让你更有吸引力,更成功,且更富有同情心。而且对你的健康也有好处。
