The Eng­lish lan­guage is one of the most widely used lan­guages in today’s world. It is either spo­ken or under­stood, at least to a basic degree in many coun­tries. Most of the busi­ness com­mu­ni­ca­tion, sci­en­tific jour­nals, higher edu­ca­tion, peri­od­i­cals and books and the inter­net rely on Eng­lish as their pri­mary lan­guage. Why Eng­lish is so impor­tant in today’s con­text? Why must one learn Eng­lish to be com­pet­i­tive and suc­cess­ful? We explore such ques­tions in this article.

Eng­lish is impor­tant in the cur­rent sce­nario due to its wide accep­tance. Except in a few coun­tries, Eng­lish is an offi­cial lan­guage if not the national lan­guage. Nev­er­the­less, it is widely spo­ken and under­stood around the world. So if your career involves trav­el­ing to var­i­ous coun­tries or if you want to pur­sue higher stud­ies in an Eng­lish speak­ing coun­try, it is imper­a­tive that you must have pro­fi­ciency in Eng­lish language.

Learn­ing Eng­lish is easy sim­ple if you are taught in your regional lan­guage or a lan­guage in which you are com­fort­able with. In fact, Eng­lish lan­guage is used a medi­a­tor for teach­ing a new lan­guage like French, Ger­man, Chi­nese etc. It is con­sid­ered as the uni­ver­sal medium for express­ing thoughts. It is used a medium to exchange ideas and infor­ma­tion in var­i­ous for­mal and busi­ness trans­ac­tions. Thus, there is a huge demand for pro­fes­sion­als who are pro­fi­cient in Eng­lish lan­guage. As a result, one tries to excel in Eng­lish lan­guage to be in decent job. Since, the num­ber of Eng­lish instruc­tors are less in num­ber, there is a huge demand for teach­ing per­son­nel espe­cially in fastest grow­ing Asian coun­tries like China, Korea etc. Thus Kore­ans can teach in Korea and take pur­sue it as their pro­fes­sion. There are many insti­tu­tions which teach but only a few of them are good and reliable.

Eng­lish grammar

Some­times it is funny how peo­ple tend to cre­ate sen­tences with their own book of gram­mar. Know­ing the basic rules of gram­mar is essen­tial for proper fram­ing of sen­tences both, while read­ing as well as writ­ing. Being aware of all the know-how of gram­mar, one can speak flu­ent Eng­lish and write prop­erly framed sen­tences with ease.

Types of Grammar

There are two branches of grammar-descriptive and pre­scrip­tive. Both the types are used broadly in day to day life. While numer­ous lin­guists pre­fer to go with the for­mer, those who teach Eng­lish tend to go for the lat­ter. On a big­ger note, descrip­tive gram­mar accepts the gram­mar of any lan­guage the way it is. On the other hand, pre­scrip­tive gram­mar has its own strict set of rules that every part of speech shall abide by so as to be termed as gram­mat­i­cally cor­rect. It is impor­tant to have a broad knowl­edge of both the type to be able to speak and writer proper English.

Concord — Consistency in gender, name, case, person

Eng­lish lan­guage is pecu­liar because when you write a sen­tence, you will not be able to real­ize that you have made a mis­take because when you read it casu­ally, it sounds like a cor­rect sen­tence. When you probe it care­fully, you can find a mis­take either in spelling, sen­tence for­ma­tion or in gram­mar. Of all these three, iden­ti­fy­ing an erro­neous gram­mar is tough is tricky because it has got many rules and excep­tions. In this arti­cle, we are going to talk about some of the com­mon gram­mat­i­cal errors that many of us make in day-to-day life.

Try to read the fol­low­ing sen­tence aloud

It is I who is relieved from the pain. 

When you read the above sen­tence, you don’t think that there is any error, do you? Even I didn’t real­ize that there is a gram­mat­i­cal error until I read it care­fully for sec­ond time. The sec­ond “is” is the rel­a­tive pro­noun in the above sen­tence must agree with the per­son “I” and num­ber of their antecedents. The rel­a­tive pro­noun of I is “am”. Hence the cor­rect form of the above sen­tence is

It is I who am relieved from the pain.

To avoid these kinds of mis­takes, write sim­ple sen­tence like, I am relieved from the pain. This will avoid mak­ing of mis­takes. This error is known as gram­mat­i­cal agree­ment, “Con­cord” in tech­ni­cal terms.
