Reasons why Learning English is Important

English Language

English is the most important language in the world. Why? This language is spoken in many different countries around the world. Billions of people communicate and do business in English. The English language is the world’s universal language and people who do not know English should learn it. Let’s take a deeper look reasons for learning English.

English Language

America’s Influence and the English Language:

America is considered the greatest nation on Earth. Since it is, the opportunities that lie within this country are only accessible by knowing and understanding the English language. American people communicate and do business in English.

So, a person must have a general knowledge of this language to work, get an education and to start a business. Without a basic grasp of the English language, people will have a hard time taking advantage of the benefits that America has to offer.

English is a Standard for Communication:

Thanks to the British Empire, the English language was spread to key locations across the globe. Major empires and kingdoms that the Brits conquered hundreds of years ago influenced many of the surrounding territories.

While the Brits no longer have control of their former territories, they left behind their language. Places such as India, Canada, South Africa and Ghana were all conquered by the British in the past. People in these countries still continue to speak English from this time period.

Foreigners should Learn English for Communication Purposes:

Foreigners who travel or relocate to an English-speaking territory, should learn this language. Remember, that many nations prefer to do business in English. This is a common language that makes it easier for everyone to communicate. Foreigners should also realize that English is essential for understanding the people and culture that resides within an English-speaking country.

English and Social Adjustment:

Foreigners that reside in a predominantly English-speaking culture should learn English for the following reasons:

  • It will help school-aged children to effectively communicate.
  • Minors 17 and under should take advantage of their school’s ESL language assistance to improve their ability to communicate this language. This, in turn, will help them to maximize their education and understanding of the society around them.
  • Foreign people will have an easier time transitioning to most western societies once they learn English.
  • Learning English also helps foreigners to communicate their agenda and way of life to the masses.
  • English Speakers should Improve their Language Ability:

English speakers should also improve their language ability. They should make it a point to brush up on their language skills and to improve their ability to speak well. English is not limited to just speaking. People should also make it a point to improve their writing ability. Improving the ability to speak and write well will only improve a person’s English speaking ability.

3 Easy Ways to Learn a New Language Fast

English Language

Learning a language is an amazing and hugely beneficial undertaking. Not only can it help improve your job prospects but it also enhances your understanding of other cultures in a real and meaningful way. Children absorb language quicker than adults and have much less trouble learning a new language. However, there are ways for adults to enhance their ability to learn a new language. Whether you want to reconnect with your heritage, travel to another country or understand others in the workplace or home there are some flexible and effective ways to learn a new language.

New Languages

Language Game Apps:

A relatively new phenomenon, language game apps keep the user engaged and alert, challenging them to make leaps in comprehension and pronunciation. The downfall with this method of learning a new language is that there is limited scope for meaningful pronunciation feedback, but you can easily pick up the basics of a language fast. Some language game apps are better than others, and it may be worth trying a few different ones to find the app that suits you. There are also audio learning guides that can teach you conversational language.

Get Lessons:

Many community centres, school and other educational organisations offer language classes in which you can take advantage of an experienced and fluent language teacher. With this approach, you can get pronunciation feedback and engage in conversational language in order to absorb the practical elements of a language fast. The potential downside to this approach is the cost of the lessons, so shop around and see what is available in your area. Sometimes speakers fluent in the language will offer to tutor as a means of extra income and this may be a less expensive route.

Immerse yourself in Language:

It is well known that one of the best ways to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it. Try to surround yourself with people who speak the language by travelling overseas or even participating in community events if there is a large population of people who speak your desire language in your local area. By forcing yourself to at least attempt to use the new language rather than fall back to your native tongue your language retention will improve. Listen to audio in that language, try to understand and repeat the words you hear.

Combine the 3 elements:

Whilst one of these approaches will help you to learn a new language fast if you really want to speed up your language retention combining these elements will achieve the best results. Download an app or an audio guide, or both and practice the principals they teach you when you immerse yourself in the language. Many people use formal lessons as a springboard for using other methods such as an app. Travelling overseas is the ultimate test of your language skills and can help to develop them further.
