Why SHOULD YOU learn English?

Good question. I believe everyone should learn the English language for the following reasons.


English is the most widely spoken language in the world based on the distribution of native speakers.

Communication, Friends
  • In many countries, English is widely used, particularly among people who have no other language in common, even though English is not the main language of the country. For example, English is widely used in Hong Kong, Singapore, Nigeria, the Philippines, and Malaysia. In these countries, it is often used as a means of communication between people who use different dialects of their native languages.
  • Now online communities like My Space, YouTube, etc., offer people a way to make friends around the world and practice speaking English.
News, Information
  • English is the main language of news and information in the world.
  • English is the language used in business and government even in countries where it is not the main language.
Business, Government, International Relations

  • Popular culture has played an important part in spreading English.
