English is one of
the most widely spoken languages
although; it comes second to Mandarin in the total number of speakers. English is the language you’ll be able to use most widely, as it’s spoken in more countries than any other language.
That means that English is the language that will give you the best return for your efforts; after all, intellectual challenge aside. There’s little point putting a huge amount of time and effort into learning a language that you’ll hardly ever have the opportunity to use.
English will open up more opportunities for you:
Being able to speak English allows you to communicate effectively in numerous countries, opens up lots of possibilities for you in terms of the countries you could choose to seek work in one day – not to mention travel to as a tourist.
English will make you more desirable to employers:
Being fluent in a second language clearly demonstrates a powerful brain and reflects someone who has put in the huge amount of time, resources and commitment needed to master another language.
While being bilingual is impressive, no matter what combination of languages you speak, adding English to your CV will be particularly useful.
English gives you access to some of the world’s best universities:
English is widely regarded as the language of higher education. Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and MIT are just a few of the famous universities that occupy the lofty heights of the top of the world education league tables, and you’ll need to speak English fluently for access to any of these, as they’re all English-speaking.
English is the language of some of the world’s greatest literature:
If you learn English, you’ll be able to enjoy works by some of the world’s most famous writers, in the language in which they were intended to be read or heard. The works of Shakespeare will take on a new meaning when you’re able to speak English,
English allows you to get more from popular culture:
The world’s highest-grossing movies are made in Hollywood, and needless to say, they are made in English. How many times have you been to see an American blockbuster and been frustrated by having to keep up with fast-paced subtitles?
English allows you to attend international conferences and events:
You may find yourself needing to attend conferences as part of your chosen career, so learning English now will be of enormous benefit to you in years to come. Not only will you be able to understand the talks, but you’ll get a lot more out of the networking opportunities that come with such events if you can talk effectively in English.
English has a simple alphabet and everyone’s equal:
The English alphabet is straightforward, making it easier to master than the symbols or pictures that make up some languages. There are no complicated symbols and characters to get to grips with in English, either; even in French, which essentially uses the same alphabet, there are several accents used on certain letters that alter the pronunciation. Not so in English
English gives you wider access to knowledge:
English is also the language of science. If you learn English, you won’t just have access to a greater proportion of the vast amount of knowledge available on the web; you’ll be able to educate yourself still further by being able to read scientific books and papers.
English is, of course, essential if you intend to pursue a scientific career
: Within the Science Citation Index, compiled by the Institute for Scientific Information, an estimated 95% of articles are written in English despite only around half being from English-speaking countries.
According to the Open University, “At Oxford University two thirds of post-graduate students come from outside the UK. The students in the university’s chemistry research lab admit that working in English is a key attraction.”
English is a fantastic intellectual challenge!
English is undoubtedly one of the harder languages to learn. Full of nuances, unexpected pronunciations, odd rules and infuriating exceptions to rules, it takes dedication and perseverance to reach a good level of fluency.
