The Importance of Learning English
First, we need to know why learning English is important so that it gives you motivation to keep on learning and never give up. We already know that English is the language for international communication. But you may ask yourself, still what can I do with it? My answer will be: everything. By knowing that English is the language for international communication means you will increase your chance in everything through learning English, from education, career, entertainment, to your relationship with others. I will explain them one by one.
Here are two big reasons that learning English can improve your life:
1. It Can Help You Get a Better Job
Companies are becoming more international, and English is listed as an essential skill for more and more jobs. There are some organisations that now conduct all their business in English, no matter where in the world they are based. If you want the best paid opportunities, learning English is a great idea.
2. It Makes It Easier to Travel
As I said before, English is the world’s second language. This means that learning English makes it much easier to travel anywhere you want. For example, aeroplane announcements, train timetables, emergency information and street signs are often translated into English, particularly in countries that use a different type of alphabet. Plus, even if you don’t find other travellers or local people that speak your mother tongue, you are practically guaranteed to find someone who understands some English.
