English is the most commonly used language among foreign language speakers.
Throughout the world when people from different languages come together they use English to communicate. Being able to speak English opens many opportunities around the world.
There are careers that involve a lot of travelling and international exposure.
The airlines, tourism and film industries use English as their official language. If you want to work in any of these careers, many employers need a certain level of English.
Not only those kinds of careers require a certain level of English, in almost every career you need to have a good English like for example English is the official language in science if you want to be a good scientist you need to be able to speak a fluent English or if you just want to keep up on what’s new you at least need to understand the article you are reading.
If you have a good English you will not have to worry when you travel to an English-speaking country because you will be able to communicate perfectly with all the people there, you’ll be able to ask for directions, take guide tourists, ordering food and talking to locals so you can learn more about the city or country you’re visiting.
As you can see that speaking, English is very important because it opens many opportunities for you.
Sometimes we are afraid of learning a new language or maybe we know it but we doubt our knowledge of the language but the truth is that English is one of the easiest languages to learn. We have to lose that fear and start believing in ourselves so we can open more doors.
