It is important to learn English because it is an international language.
Learning English is very useful in today’s world. Even if you don’t need it in your career, this language gives you additional opportunities for your personal development, as global demand for English is continuing to grow.
When you travel abroad (not necessarily to an English-speaking country), it is extremely important to know at least basic expressions in English, as almost all international airports and railway stations use this language in their schedules along with the native language. Without sufficient English knowledge your trip can sometimes be hard and you probably won’t enjoy it in full.
Besides, all international business is done in English, so this language is really necessary if you want to be a successful businessman or businesswoman, contact other businesspeople, attend conferences and simply be able to carry on a conversation at a decent level.
It’s evident that the majority of all world information on the Internet is in English. Thus, good English knowledge can be a key to over a billion pages, where you can find various subjects and topics about all aspects of life. As the Internet enables the communication between people from different countries and continents, English, in turn, helps to overcome the language barrier, being an international bridge between cultures.
For each of us English can be a tool to fulfillment of our aspirations, so don’t waste an opportunity to be closer to the world. And remember: every single hour you spend learning English gets you closer to perfection.
