IMPORTANCE OF LEARNING ENGLISH - PART 2
5. Many scientific papers are written in English
In the last century, the number of scientific papers written in English has started to outweigh the number of papers written in the native language of the researcher. In the Netherlands, for example, the ratio is a surprising 40 to 1. For this reason, having a knowledge of English is incredibly important to those working in the scientific field.
6. English makes it easier to travel
As highlighted before, since English is spoken as a first language in 53 countries and as a second language in over 118 countries, learning the language makes it much easier to travel anywhere. Indeed, airport announcements, train timetables, emergency information and street signs are often available in English, including in countries where the native language uses a different type of alphabet. It goes without saying that, when travelling to a country where you don’t speak the language, you are practically guaranteed to find someone who understands at least some English.
7. English is the languages for business, especially if you want to be successful in the global market.
There is no doubt that English is the language of business. In today’s increasingly globalized economy, English has become the language of international business. As a result, those who can effectively communicate in English will have a significant advantage in the job market. However, it is important to note that the use of English in business is not limited to spoken communication. To be truly effective, one must also be able to write and understand written English. This skill is essential for everything from reading corporate reports to writing emails and memos. Therefore, anyone looking to succeed in today’s business world must commit to mastering the English language.
8. English Allows You to Make More Friends
Because English is the most widely used language online and offline, you are likely to meet English speakers when you are traveling or using chat apps like WhatsApp.
