Reasons to Learn English: Why English?

You have many excuses for not improving your English: you’re too busy, it’s too hard or you’ll never need. But you’re wrong! Read why English is important for you (and anyone else)!

Make more friends
If you can speak English, you can talk to over 1.5 billion people around the world. That’s a lot of friends! One in four people speak some English and more are learning. You can chat online, write to pen pals or travel the world – using one language!

Advance your career
Most international business is conducted in English. If you want a management job in a multinational company, you will probably need to speak English. And English is not only important for business people. The technology, aviation, diplomacy and tourism fields also use English.

Ask for directions in 75 countries
English is the official language or has special status in 75 countries and is spoken in 100. It’s the international language for business, academics, sports, science, technology, advertising and diplomacy. Learn English and go anywhere, do anything!

Access more media
Many books, magazines and newspapers are available only in English. And many non-English books are translated into English. If you can read English, you’ll have many more books to choose from.

Unlock the internet
You may think many websites are translated into local language, but eighty percent of electronic information is actually only in English. If you don’t know English, you can’t read over a billion pages of the internet!

Be a scientist
The world’s scientists use English to talk with each other. Scientific conferences are conducted in English and most research is published in English. Over two-thirds of the world’s scientists read in English.

Pursue overseas opportunities
There are thousands of international study, work and volunteer programs all over the world. But many are not available to non-English speakers. Worlds of opportunity open when you can speak English.
