Why learn or improve your English as an adult?
Firstly, because English is the language that connects all people. As a result, by improving your English language skills you are building a bridge to connect with the rest of the world. For many years English has been a global language. Statistics show that English is now the most spoken language worldwide. 1,500 million (1.5 billion) people worldwide speak English, of whom 375 million are native speakers.
Secondly, because English has a great momentum which isn’t just academic or political or regional. It’s happening with everything and everywhere these days. If you are a businessman, a scientist or politician English is needed to transmit and understand ideas within a global community. As the world becomes more interconnected, being able to communicate with people from different countries becomes a valuable skill.
Another main reason is because English is important for higher education and specialized training. Most books written on academic subjects are written in English or translated in English very soon after they are written in their mother tongue. English is also the medium of instruction in most universities and higher education establishments around the world.
Furthermore, the largest spoken “second language” in the EU is English. Most debates and discussions in the European Parliament are held in English. English is the dominant language of engagement and day-to-day operations of the EU. It is also the most spoken language at the UN. In addition, countries like China, India and Brazil all teach English to their young. Even OPEC whose only English speaking member is Nigeria has English as it’s official language.
Consequently, by learning English you can boost your career prospects or simply get a better paid job more easily in another country. Learning English can seriously increase your employment opportunities and help you to develop your knowledge and skills.
