The value of English in our time

The sig­nif­i­cance of the Eng­lish lan­guage these days is hard to over­state. It has long been turned into a uni­ver­sal lan­guage. Suf­fice it to say that it is in vary­ing degrees, speak more than 750 mil­lion peo­ple through­out the world and 80% of infor­ma­tion stored in elec­tronic form, writ­ten in Eng­lish. It is not only a lan­guage in the UK, 31 th state of USA, Aus­tralia, New Zealand and one of the two offi­cial lan­guages of Canada, Ire­land and Malta, but also they are actively used by some States in Asia and Africa. This is the lan­guage of inter­na­tional orga­ni­za­tions such as UN, NATO and UNESCO. On sev­eral occa­sions, attempted to invent a replace­ment of the Eng­lish lan­guage, to facil­i­tate the study and level the chances of all nations for mutual com­mu­ni­ca­tion. They have led to the cre­ation of sev­eral gen­eral lan­guages, the most suc­cess­ful of which was Esperanto. How­ever, bring­ing together a range of fans, he has ceased to grow. Many sci­en­tists have expressed the thought that the rea­son for this was the lack of Esperanto roots and his­tory, while the Eng­lish lan­guage — a lan­guage of Dick­ens, Shake­speare, Oscar Wilde, the Bea­t­les, Rolling Stones and many other great writ­ers and musicians.

Eng­lish lan­guage needed every­where: at rest and at work. Whether you’re in Vienna, or Munich, or Shang­hai, in Havana, he always comes to your aid: in a restau­rant in a hotel, museum, or while walk­ing around the city. Adver­tis­ing in all air­ports of the world, mark­ing on maps, signs on the roads — most of all that is dupli­cated in Eng­lish. Know­ing the Eng­lish lan­guage, peo­ple do not dis­ap­pear in any of the world.

Now it is dif­fi­cult to see a spe­cial­ist, not own­ing at least one for­eign lan­guage. Eng­lish lan­guage — it is the lan­guage of high tech­nol­ogy, pro­gram­ming, the lan­guage of con­tracts and nego­ti­a­tions, the lan­guage of radio, tele­vi­sion and, of course, the Inter­net. That is why most rep­utable com­pa­nies in employ­ment indi­cates a pre­req­ui­site knowl­edge of English.

Most par­ents seek, as soon as pos­si­ble to begin to teach the child Eng­lish. And here they come to the aid of the many schools that are in-language media. One of the most pop­u­lar in this area coun­tries — this, of course, the United King­dom, which offers train­ing in schools, col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties. Here the stu­dents have the oppor­tu­nity to come to this Eng­lish fam­ily and learn Eng­lish, so called, «the method of total immer­sion». Not less demand school Malta, New Zealand and the United States.

Eng­lish lan­guage has long been manda­tory for the edu­cated per­son. It is not only that the pos­ses­sion of free will allow you to take a higher step in the com­mu­nity and com­mu­ni­cate with inter­est­ing peo­ple, but that is spo­ken in Laos: Know­ing a for­eign lan­guage — it is like to live another life .

  1. I would be very inter­ested to learn the fig­ures of the word I mean there are so many chi­nese speak­ers and span­ish speak­ers now — a pie chart would be good to show every­one the % each lan­guage has! :)

    Thats maybe an idea for your next arti­cle ;)
