Why Learning English Language Is Important?

The anti colo­nial­ists have argued that Eng­lish is only impor­tant because of Amer­ica. Of course the United King­dom is nowhere near the for­mi­da­ble Empire that it was in the 19th cen­tury. Nev­er­the­less Eng­lish remains a sub­stan­tive lan­guage that effec­tively runs the world.

The impor­tance of the Eng­lish language

Chi­nese is spo­ken by a vast num­ber of peo­ple but in real­ity there is lit­tle com­pe­ti­tion against Eng­lish in busi­ness cir­cles. French is los­ing its power even in diplo­matic cir­cles. The world is becom­ing a global vil­lage and chances are that Eng­lish will be the choice for com­mu­ni­ca­tion purposes.

1. Trav­el­ing with Eng­lish: If you are vis­it­ing Africa, Amer­ica, Europe, Asia and Aus­tralia, your Eng­lish will be of great use. Many of these con­ti­nents have local lan­guages but Eng­lish will help you to deal with hotel staff and the local peo­ple. You can­not be expected to learn all the local dialects for the places you visit. There­fore you need a uni­ver­sal lan­guage that can help you inter­act with the community.

2. Study­ing with Eng­lish: If you look at the top uni­ver­si­ties in the world, Eng­lish is the mode of com­mu­ni­ca­tion for the major­ity of them. If you really want to expand your study then it is inevitable that you will begin to learn the lan­guage. It is cer­tainly an essen­tial require­ment if you intend to study in the United States of Amer­ica. You will not be granted a visa unless you have com­pleted an ESOL course.

3. Cor­re­spon­dence and com­mu­ni­ca­tion: You will need the lan­guage in order to com­mu­ni­cate with dif­fer­ent insti­tu­tions across the globe. It is not enough to have a good trans­la­tor. You have to have the means to express your ideas and require­ments. Of course you might not need to write but that will close your hori­zons. It is bet­ter to get some knowl­edge of the lan­guage so that you can use it when you need to.

4. The growth of the inter­net: The influ­ence of the inter­net has meant that Eng­lish is still lead­ing. The vast major­ity of web­sites are writ­ten in this lan­guage. You would be miss­ing out on e-commerce com­mu­ni­ties if you could not under­stand the nuances of the var­i­ous pages that con­tain the mar­ket­ing infor­ma­tion. The younger gen­er­a­tion in par­tic­u­lar will be chal­lenged if they do not have access to the inter­net. This is an essen­tial ser­vice for all intents and purposes.

There are some peo­ple that argue for alter­na­tive lan­guages. For exam­ple other mem­bers of the Euro­pean Union are very proud of their lan­guages and will go to extra­or­di­nary steps to ensure that it is the main form of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. As a case in point it is very hard to get cit­i­zen­ship in Scan­di­na­vian coun­tries if you do not speak their lan­guages. How­ever it is also quite clear that when the need arises, the Danes, Swedes and Nor­we­gians are com­pe­tent in Eng­lish. You should not allow your­self to be left behind because you have not taken the time to study this impor­tant lan­guage. You will never regret the deci­sion to study English.
