A new study found that Americans think bilingual people are more attractive


Good news for those of you who can speak more than one language, you're a little sexier than the rest of us. 

A new survey by language app Babbel reveals that 71 percent of Americans and 61 percent of Britons think that people who speak another language besides English are more attractive, reports CNN

Love is breaking down the language barrier. Of 3,000 people surveyed, nine out of 10 admitted they'd learn new language for a special someone. And about half said they'd date someone from another country.

"Knowing another language helps to break barriers and to connect on a special level of mutual understanding; be it while on the street, traveling, or in business," said Babbel Director of Didactics Miriam Plieninger. 

Unfortunately, Americans lag behind the rest of the world in language ability. More than half the world speaks at least two languages, but a 2001 Gallup poll found that only about a quarter of Americans could hold a conversation in another language. 

According to a previous Babbel survey, French was considered the sexiest second language.

So if you want to up your game, maybe learning another language is a good place to start.
