The importance of English

I am Jessica , the Chairperson of the English Language Society .

I speech this article because I am concerned about many student’ attitude towards studying the English language . Although the government has repeatedly told us of the importance of English , many students are still not bothered about studying it seriously . English can be said to be the most important and the most useful language in the world today . There are many reasons why you should study the language properly .

The first reason is English will help you a lot when you further your studies . Almost all the books at university are written in English . So , if your English is poor , you are going to have a big problem studying at university .

The second reason you have to study English well is that it will help you to get a job . When you go for a job interview , the interviewer will surely talk to you in English . If you cannot speak English well , your chances of getting the job are very slim .

A good command of English will also help you greatly in your job . If the company you work for is involved in international trade , you have to speak to prospective customers in English . If your English is bad , you will not be able to get orders for your company’s products . You will likely be dismissed .

Good English will also help you a lot when you travel . Every country in the world studies English . Even the roadside stall-holders in China speak fairly good English ! At least some of the people you meet on your travels in other countries can understand English . So , you will not have any communication problems when you travel to other countries if your English is good .

After all my explanation , I hope you now see the importance of studying English well . You can enjoy many advantages if you improve your English .

Thank you .
