I study English. It's a long and slow process that takes a lot of time and efforts. Over 300 million people speak it is a mother tongue. The native speakers of English live in Great Britain, the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand.
English is very popular now. It’s the language of computers, science, business, sport and politics. English language is a wonderful language. It’s the language of the great literature. It’s the language of William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and others. Half of the world’s scientific literature is in English.
It’s the language of computer technology. Nearly half of all business deals in Europe are conducted in English. It is the language of sports and glamour: the official language of the Olympics and the Miss Universe Competition. English is the official voice of the air and the sea, and Christianity: it is the ecumenical language of the World Council of Churches. The largest broadcasting companies in the world (CBS, NBS, ABC, BBC) transmit in English to audiences that regularly exceed one hundred million.
The great German poet Goette once said, «He, who knows no foreign language, doesn’t know his own one». That’s why in order to understand oneself and environment one has to learn foreign languages.
Speaking a foreign language you can read papers, magazines and original books by great writers, watch satellite TV programs. If you like traveling you can go anywhere without being afraid that other people will not understand you.
I think that to know English today is absolutely necessary for every educated man.
I’m sure that it is very necessary and important to learn English now, because English is the language of the planet. 760 million people all over the world use it. English is the main language of business, sports, science, trade, progressive technology, commerce, it is the world’s computer language, three quarters of the world’s mail is in English. It’s the universal language of international aviation, shipping and the major language of diplomacy. Hundreds of books, magazines and newspapers are printed in English and read all over the world. Half of the world’s scientific literature is written in English-Over 30 million people speak English as a mother tongue. The native speakers of English live in Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. English is one of the official languages in the Irish Republic, Canada and the South African Republic. As a second language it is used in the former British and US colonies. Besides, millions of people study and use English as foreign language. In our country English is very popular: it’s studied at schools (sometimes even at nursery schools), colleges and universities. Learning English is not an easy thing as it takes a lot of time and patience. Sometimes it’s boring to study grammar or to learn new words, but it’s well known that reading books in the original, listening to the BBC news, communicating with the English speaking people will help a lot.
As for me, I try to read books, poems of English writers in the original, I learn poems by heart and 10 words daily, I try to translate English songs. I also want to use English in my future job, because I want to become an interpreter. So I can say that English is absolutely necessary to know for every educated person, for every good specialist today.
