Communication in different languages provides an insight into the understanding of different cultures and experiences hence a multilingual becomes multicultural in nature. Since languages don’t operate in a vacuum, culture and society play a key role in its existence. This is because language is a sociolinguistic, an ethnolinguistic and a psycholinguistic issue. Thus language relies on society, culture and mind. In this regard, multilingualism enhances an automatic understanding and appreciation of cultural values of the societies that are contained in the concerned languages. The experiences gained from learning different languages automatically tend to change the attitudes, skills, beliefs of the people, society and create an expansion of world view. All these attributes are formally taught in classroom and informally in the daily communication outside classroom. For example, when we study German language in Kosovan context, we are forced to study its origin, the German speaking people and also their cultural and traditional values thus changing the readers’ perceptions. Multilingualism provides a competitive edge in today’s job market. Besides the academic and professional credentials, employers also look for fluency in the desired languages as an added advantage. Therefore, being a multilingual is a plus to any job seeker in this millennium. This can only be realized if multilingualism is entrenched in the learning curriculum.
